AP Language novels

My students need books to prepare for success on the AP Language exam. Tortilla Curtain and The Things They Carried will add to their capacity for success.

My Students

Gifted high school juniors are able to study, learn, and grow together in our AP Language course. We relate real world events to literature, art, and life to become informed, creative, and compassionate citizens.

My students are gifted 16 and 17 year-olds.

They are insightful, engaging, challenging, and exciting. They all chose to take this class to work deeper, harder, and more honestly by working together. They are wonderful, caring individuals who want to make the world a more equitable place for all.

My Project

My students will use these resources to explore parts of our world and history through literary eyes, allowing them to examine the effects of war and societal differences at a personal level. They will discuss, analyze, synthesize, and create incredible futures based on a wealth of knowledge and experience gained through superior literature.

My students are the future leaders of our country.

These books will add to their empathetic capacity and allow them to continue development of their rhetorical skills and scholarship.
