CLINTON — A Clinton High School teacher has been selected to participate in a national Advanced Placement program.
Fine Arts teacher Joann Winkler was selected to participate in the College Board’s annual AP Reading in Studio Art. Each June, AP teachers and college faculty members from around the world gather in the United States to evaluate and score the free-response sections of the AP Exams.
During the scoring sessions, more than 12,500 AP readers evaluate more than 4.2 million AP Exams.
The AP Reading is a forum in which an academic dialogue between educators is fostered and encouraged.
“The Reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors that the world has to offer,” said Trevor Packer, senior vice president, AP and Instruction at the College Board. “It fosters professionalism, allows for the exchange of ideas and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching. We are very grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Winkler.”
The Advanced Placement Program enables students to pursue college-level studies, with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both, while still in high school.
