Hi Fellow Teachers,
Since I put my web sites up starting in 1996, I've posted a considerable
amount of classroom resources and get many requests from teachers
including requests for copies of my AP Syllabi. These are very large
files that jam my e-mail if I attempt to send them, so I'm providing
online copies here for reference purposes.
I understand your pain when faced with having to write and submit
such a syllabus. When the requirement was first issued. I put together 5
of them, including AP Comp Science AB (no longer offered) within roughly a
month entirely on my own time with no additional compensation or
consideration. Yes, I griped about it, but I also learned a lot about
how to do a better job of teaching my classes.
I don't recommend copying and submitting my syllabi for lots of
different reasons and certainly you don't need to submit anything as
elaborate as these. Still, I hope they help you and give you ideas.
Yes, I really do teach all of the subjects listed at right every year
along with IB Design Technology and IB Computer Science. That's right 6
preps and generally over a hundred students. I would add that most of my
AP Computer Science and AP Statistics students are sophomores. So,
please forgive me if I'm slow to respond to your requests.
