KSDE to host AP Seminar: English 10 Experience Workshop on Friday, Feb. 10

The Kansas State Department of Education (KSDE) and College Board have partnered to offer statewide informational sessions on AP Seminar: English 10. 

KSDE is hosting an AP Seminar: English 10 Experience Workshop from 9 a.m. to noon Friday, Feb. 10. This workshop is in-person and provides an in-depth view of the AP Seminar: English 10 framework. There also will be a review of the Kansas English language arts (ELA) standards alignment to the AP Seminar framework. Participants will engage in an AP Seminar-style lesson and explore AP Seminar syllabi and instructional resources. 

AP Seminar: English 10 gives students an English course more relevant to a wide array of careers, anchored in project-based learning, collaboration, presentation skills and individual research. The course framework gives English teachers flexibility to design units and select texts from their existing curricula while continuing to meet state standards. 

To be clear, English 10 teachers wouldn’t be replacing their current English 10 curriculum but enhancing it with AP Seminar English frameworks and online resources. 

Registration: AP Seminar: English 10 Workshop Experience – Feb. 10

There are two steps to offering AP Seminar at a school:
