CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Hundreds of teachers from across the state are receiving training for advanced placement courses this week in Charleston.

The West Virginia Center for Professional Development's Advanced Placement Fall Institute began Tuesday and continues through Friday.

Educators are attending courses to learn instructional strategies from advanced placement experts. The sessions also are aimed at helping teachers better prepare students for the AP exams in May 2014.

Advanced placement courses offer high school students an opportunity to take college-level courses and receive college credit or advanced placement before entering college.
