Wheeler Brings Instructional Expertise to College Board

The College Board has selected Social Studies Department Chair Amy Wheeler to be an AP World: Modern History workshop consultant. Mrs. Wheeler, who also serves as the assistant chief reader for the AP World: Modern exam, will facilitate one College Board's AP Summer Institutes for social studies educators from across the country, equipping them to help their students perform well on the exam.

"Our students are truly fortunate to have a teacher of Mrs. Wheeler's experience, expertise, and commitment to our Dominican pillars of prayer, study, community, and service," said Principal Chad Riley. "Her role as a College Board workshop consultant and assistant chief reader not only underscores her deep knowledge of the course curriculum but also reflects her commitment to equipping educators nationwide with the tools to foster student success."

To be selected as College Board consultants, educators must demonstrate a thorough knowledge of the subject and be able to employ a "wide breadth of instructional strategies to promote student engagement and student understanding." Through her work with College Board, Mrs. Wheeler has provided BL students with numerous opportunities to hone their AP testing skills, most recently with visits from AP Human Geography Chief Reader Lisa Benton-Short and former AP World: Modern Chief Reader Tim Keirn, who facilitated student workshops on strategies for success.
