The Glasscock School’s Center for College Readiness is gearing up for their fall International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme Workshops, October 6-7, 2012.
Since its founding in 1968, more than 4,200 schools across the United States and around the world have adopted the IB curriculum, which is designed for highly motivated high school level students. These students are required to prepare for and pass rigorous standardized examinations to receive an IB diploma as well as college-level course credit at many of the world’s leading universities, including Rice University.
Come Saturday morning, 200 high school teachers, coordinators, counselors and administrators will arrive at Rice for the two-day IB Workshops, receiving instruction in topics such as literature, geography and IB coordination. Attendees are coming from all over the United States and foreign destinations such as Canada, Ecuador, Brazil and Jamaica.
“We are looking forward to training new and experienced IB DP teachers coming from all over the world to attend our workshops,” said Amy McClurd, Program Director for the Center for College Readiness. “This is our fourth time offering workshops in the fall, and we are excited about the opportunity to equip and motivate another wonderful group of educators.”
