Patricia Vandever – APSI Instructor Profile

Charlottesville High School, Charlottesville, VA

English Language and Composition, Beginner

Greetings from Charlottesville, Virginia! I am so pleased to be joining you as a College Board consultant in June of 2021 for Wake Forest University’s Advanced Placement Summer Institute. Whenever teachers gather to share information and ideas, great things happen. I taught high school English for 32 years at Charlottesville High School, served as department chairperson, developed the AP English Language curriculum for our school, and scored the AP English Language exam for several years. Currently, I work part time for the University of Virginia admissions department and serve as a College Board consultant. I would love to hear your needs in advance of our time together. I plan on walking you through the most recent AP exam, sharing hands-on classroom ideas, practicing essay writing, giving you multiple choice strategies, and providing differentiated learning strategies for implementing units from the Course Exam and Description binder. You will need a laptop or desktop with a working camera, high-speed, reliable internet, and a printer. My contact email is pvandever@aol.com.
