To stay at the forefront of the College Board AP program, District 88 teachers and administrators recently attended the 5th Annual Chicagoland AP Consortium Reflection and Renewal Conference. That event took place on May 15 at Westmont High School and was an opportunity for teachers to debrief on the recently administered AP exams, share best practices and build student-centered strategies to enhance the educational environment of the classroom. District 88 Superintendent Dr. Scott Helton; Willowbrook Principal Dr. Dan Krause; District 88 Director of Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment Dr. Adam Cibulka; and District 88 Director of Technology, Teaching and Learning Dr. Aaron Lenaghan also served on the consortium committee.

Hundreds of teachers from more than 30 high schools attend this annual event, which features workshops on the various AP subject areas – including biology, calculus, chemistry, computer science, environmental science, English, European history, human geography, macro/micro economics, physics, psychology, Spanish, statistics, U.S. government and politics, U.S. history and world history this year.

The keynote speaker for the conference was Dr. Sian Beilock, author of “How the Body Knows Its Mind” and “Choke.” During her presentation, Beilock discussed the science behind performance and how the mind and body can react in stressful situations. She provided insight and strategies to improve performance through understanding our mind, body and surroundings. For more information about Beilock, go to http://sianbeilock.com/about.html.
