Tips for Finding Quality AP Chemistry Teacher Resources
It’s important to make sure the instructional sources you use with your AP Chemistry lesson plans are reliable. Here are a few ways to guarantee an excellent level of quality in any instructional materials you find!
- Choose resources that have been designed by experts in your content area, AP educators, published journals, and companies that specialize in educational materials. These are more reliable than resources created by people who do not have strong academic backgrounds. For example, UWorld’s Learning Tools for AP Courses are written by former AP educators and content area experts.
- Share resources with other AP teachers in your district. You can do this at your school, but you can also network with other educators in your district when you go to professional development sessions in your field of instruction.
- Use textbooks. Many textbooks have online versions that allow teachers to find the tools they need just as easily as on other AP Chemistry teacher websites. Additionally, these digital versions are more reliable than their printed counterparts since they are the most current.
- Look for resources that offer a variety of teaching methods and formats. This will help you find resources that are well-suited to the needs of your students and that can be used in different teaching situations.
