The Institute for Computing Education (ICE) at the Georgia Institute of Technology is pleased to offer a College Board endorsed CS-AP workshop July 10-13th 2007 for CS A teachers. Teachers who complete the workshop will receive 3 PLUs. This course will be taught by Barbara Ericson of Georgia Tech. This workshop will run from 8:30am - 4:30pm in room 1456 of the Klaus Advanced Computing Building each day. See building 153 on the campus map at

You must have experience in Java before taking this workshop! If you do not have Java experience, but do have programming experience please take the Intermediate Programming in Java June 19-22 2007 workshop first. You should teach this material for a year or so before taking the AP workshop. However, you can take the AP workshop the same summer that you take the Intermediate Programming in Java workshop if you have taught Java for a year or more.

If you have no programming experience you should take the Beginning Programming in Java 2007 - May 29-June 1st continuing June 4-7th workshop first and teach that material for 1 or more years before taking the Intermediate Programming in Java June 19-22 2007 workshop.

This workshop is aimed at new and existing CS-AP A teachers. The workshop will have lots of hands-on exercises that teachers can use in their classrooms. This workshop will cover object-oriented concepts, the case study, and the exam. The workshop will use a variety of activities to help you understand these concepts: lecture, role-playing, small programming assignments, and object-oriented analysis and design using CRC and UML. We will use examples from Media Computation for teaching some of the concepts. Media Computation is teaching computing concepts by writing programs that manipulate media. For example, negate an image, mirror an image, reverse a sound, weave music phrases in a linked list. Students at Georgia Tech have found Media Computation to be interesting and relevant even if they are not computer science majors.

Thanks to a grant from the National Science Foundataion we will pay for Georgia teacher's room, board, and parking if you are from outside of the Atlanta area (live > 30 miles from Georgia Tech) You will be staying at the Georgia Tech Hotel ( with two teachers per room, unless you which to pay an additional cost for a private room ($62.00 a night plus tax). Out of state teachers will need to cover their own hotel, parking, and meals (except lunch which is included). For other nearby hotels see Hotels near Georgia Tech for 2007.
