Independent Curriculum Group, Philadelphia at Westtown School

January 28, 2010 from 9am to 3pm
Westtown School will host ICG's "Re-Imagining High School" conference in the Philadelphia area. Anyone interesting in serving on the conference steering committee should contact Bruce G. Hammond.

Bruce, Welcome to the ISENET ning!

I've been following ICG's work through Peter Gow's postings for a while and I look forward to your contributions to this group.

At Collegiate we are looking at oral proficiency standards as a potential replacement for our AP language classes. Do you know of schools that are using the STAMP test or other oral proficiency tests in lieu of the AP?

-Jamie
