My students need 20 copies of "Cracking the AP English Literature" to help them pass the AP English Literature exam.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am an English teacher in a high-poverty high school located in rural North Carolina. My students are in the twelfth grade and are taking the AP English Literature exam in order to graduate from high school and become prepared for college.
Our community is very small and over 53% of our students qualified for the free or reduced lunch program.
According to the U.S. Census, "The per capita income for the families served by our school is nearly 50% less than the surrounding areas and significantly less than North Carolina's average". As a result of the high poverty, these students simply do not have the resources to purchase these review books on their own. Each student is already required to take the test and pay $84 of his or her own money. It simply does not make sense to force them to also purchase this book which they would then throw away the following year.
Therefore, it is my intention to have this proposal funded in order to have a class set of this great resource. I could then assign readings from the book as well as practice tests, essays, and discussion. It would greatly enhance the quantity of example questions the students would have access to and ultimately, increase their test scores on the AP English Literature exam. If these students earn a strong score, generally a 3 or 4,they will be able to earn college credit and omit an entry level college course. This will save them time and money in the future.
Your help with funding will provide years of increased knowledge and improved test scores for my students.
You will be able to make it possible for students to perform well on the exam and not pay the $84 for naught. Thank you for your consideration
