A New Push in the Right Direction

My students need concise review books to assist them in their quest for college credit in high school.

My Students

Attending a small high school in a high poverty neighborhood, my students need more help to prepare themselves for college. This is daunting for them. Most college prep others take for granted are not available to them.

My students are an eclectic group of characters who genuinely care about each other in a full-inclusion high school.

Almost anything goes in a respectful manner. Both students and teachers want success on every level. At the same time, a college level class, for children of immigrants who are struggling with many challenges, is a bit over their heads. Yet, they took the challenge.

My Project

These texts will empower my students in their attempt at earning college credit. A first AP class can be daunting to students, especially if it is during the most challenging year of high school, eleventh grade. Students tend to panic, and the books requested can quell their fears. When overwhelmed, the book will provide a way for students to narrow their focus, and calmly navigate their way through the fact deluge some students feel when they try to master Advanced Placement United States History. In the past, only students who could afford the books purchased them, much to the frustration of other students who would have loved to have the book.
