Attending the AP Reading

I attended the AP Reading as a Reader in both 2006 and 2007 and just wanted to write about what a positive experience it was.  The AP Reading lists among its participants a roughly even split of both high school and college level educators.  There are textbook authors, workshop leaders, AP Exam developers, as well as about 100 other participants who are all passionate about computer science education.  The interaction between the participants is really my main reason for attending.  The added bonus is the fact that we get to learn precisely how the AP exam is graded which gives us a very obvious leg up when it comes to instructing our own students.  If you have been teaching AP CS for a few years now and plan on continuing to teach AP CS for years to come I encourage you to apply at:  www.ets.org/reader/ap/.
