SANFORD - Lisa Knight, Physics & Geology instructor at Central Carolina Community College, was selected to participate in the College Board's Annual AP Reading in Physics. 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.
The Advanced Placement Program(R) (AP(R)) enables willing and academically prepared students to pursue college-level studies -- with the opportunity to earn college credit, advanced placement or both -- while still in high school. Through AP courses in 37 subjects, each culminating in a rigorous exam, students learn to analyze complex problems, construct solid arguments, and see many sides of an issue -- skills that prepare them for college and beyond. Research indicates that students who score a 3 or higher on an AP Exam typically experience greater academic success in college and are more likely to earn a college degree than non-AP students.
"We are proud that Lisa was selected to be a reader for the AP Physics exam," said Scott Byington, CCCC Dean of Arts, Sciences and Advising. "Lisa is a talented, experienced Physics educator and she will be an asset to the College Board during the AP Exam evaluation process. She will bring the same skill and talent to this process as she brings to CCCC students daily."
"Lisa is the second in two years from the Math and Sciences Department to be a national AP Reader," said Fred Fritz, CCCC Department Chair, Mathematics and Sciences. "This opportunity shows her dedication as a Physics instructor and her expertise in her subject area."
