Teacher Perspectives: Professional development

Matt Johnson: I have tried to stay up to date with teaching methods and content through attending a few workshops. Since enrolling as an AP teacher, I've been to a few content-driven workshops, but AP [also] tries to give you some teaching tips on how to get this stuff across. That's been the bulk of my professional development. As far as content goes, I'm in a great city. There are a lot of good things to read, a lot of things going on, that make teaching government absolutely a wonderful experience. You can make teaching government wonderful anywhere but you may have to buy a Washington Post or a New York Times, and you probably want to watch C-SPAN now and again. You'll have the advantage of being in a state, so that could make things interesting, too.
