AP Readiness 2017-2018

THE DATE FOR THE FIFTH AP READINESS WORKSHOP IS 

SATURDAY, JANUARY 27TH, 2018
 
TRIP SLIPS ARE DUE BY JANUARY 24TH
, 2018

TRIP SLIP ATTACHED AND REGISTRATION LINK INCLUDED 

 

So far this year over 400 GOHS students have attended the AP Readiness program at UCR in order to receive supplemental, supportive instruction in their respective AP/IB courses.  


The intent of the workshops is to provide instructional support to AP and IB students in the following STEM courses:

  • Biology, Chemistry, Env. Science and Physics
  • Calculus, Statistics, Computer Science Principles
  • English Language and English Literature

 

The workshops run one Saturday each month leading up to the exams.  They are all different, and they are organized to match the curricular development in each subject.   A student may go to just one, a few, or all eight workshops.  A student who attends all of them would receive 32 additional instructional support hours - FREE OF CHARGE!
 
The district provides busing for students, although students can also just show up to UCR.  The process is:
 

Step One:

Student must register for workshop.  Here is the link.  

AP Readiness Registration Link  

Once a student registers for the first one, he/she doesn't need to register again this year.

 
Step Two:
If student wishes to ride the bus, he/she downloads the trip slip attached, fills it out, and returns it to his or her AP teacher, or to Mrs. Treto in the SPIRIT center.  Students may also get themselves to UCR as long as they arrive no later than 8:45 a.m.  They must be picked up at 2:00 p.m. 

​​YOU ONLY NEED A TRIP SLIP IF YOU PLAN TO RIDE THE BUS.  OTHERWISE, YOU CAN JUST REGISTER, OR IF YOU HAVE ALREADY GONE TO THE FIRST ONE, YOU CAN JUST SHOW UP!

 
For more information please contact January King at jking@tvusd.k12.ca.us or Deeann Treto at dtreto@tvusd.k12.ca.us

General Information

What is the International Baccalaureate Organization?
The IBO is a non-profit international educational organization established in 1968. The IBO offers three programmes of international education that span the primary, middle and secondary school years. The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is designed for students aged 3-12, the Middle Years Programme (MYP) for students aged 11-16, and the Diploma Programme (DP) for students aged 16-18. While these programmes form a continuous sequence, each may be offered independently. In all three programmes, the IBO offers schools curriculum materials, assessment procedures, teacher training workshops, school authorization, programme evaluation, and comprehensive support services in English, French and Spanish.   Great Oak High School offers the Diploma Programme only.  This means that involved students commit to attempting the entire programme during their junior and senior years.


How many schools offer IB programmes?
Currently, 1,293 schools are authorized to offer IB programmes (the Diploma Programme, the Middle Years Programme, the Primary Years Programme). The schools offer a total of 1,489 IB programmes (DP, MYP, PYP).  In the United States there are 521 Diploma Programmes, and over 85 of these are in the state of California.


What types of schools offer IB programmes?
IB programmes are offered by state schools, public schools, private schools and international schools.


Can any student enroll in an IB programme?
Only students enrolled in an IBO authorized school may participate in an IB programme. Any student who is at an IBO-authorized school may enroll in the Primary Years Programme and the Middle Years Programme. The Diploma Programme (DP) is designed more for highly motivated students who hope to attend university; enrollment in the programme is at the discretion of the school.  At Great Oak High School we believe that all students willing to accept the challenge should be allowed to participate in the programme.  Students from outside of the district who wish to transfer in for the programme are subject to some regulations.  Please contact the coordinator for more informaiton.
