Kim Sanders and Rhonda Riggin of the Booneville School District, were selected to participate in the College Board’s Annual AP Reading in AP Literature and AP Biology.
Each June, AP teachers and college faculty members from around the world gather in the United States to evaluate and score the free-response sections of the AP Exams.
AP Readers are high school and college educators who represent many of the world’s leading academic institutions. The AP Reading is a unique forum in which an academic dialogue between educators is both fostered and encouraged.
“The Reading draws upon the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors that the world has to offer,” said Trevor Packer, Senior Vice President, AP and Instruction at the College Board. “It fosters professionalism, allows for the exchange of ideas, and strengthens the commitment to students and to teaching. We are very grateful for the contributions of talented educators like Rhonda Riggin and Kim Sanders.”
The two have returned from Kansas City as part of the College Board’s AP reading. The AP Reading is by invitation only. Teachers from all over the world are selected to be a part of the reading. They score the free response portion of the AP exams.
Many students at Booneville Schools who take these exams and many make qualifying scores which translates to college credit.
