Lincoln High School, San Jose:

The team of six AP teachers seek to improve the AP culture and instruction on campus in service to greater equity of success for all students. Though their work with the AP Success research study at Stanford’s Center to Support Excellence in Teaching (CSET), team members identified this as area in need of strengthening. They will continue the partnership with Stanford to study the impact of a shift to culturally-responsive pedagogy on AP students. The team’s professional learning experiences include workshops, conferences, and a  faculty retreat where data, observations, and inferences will be shared and outside speakers will be brought in to support the learning of the AP faculty toward a goal of stronger AP culture and success.
