Death of a Salesman Should not be Death of an AP Course

My Students

According to the College Board AP program: "The AP English course in Literature and Composition should engage students in the careful reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature. ...Reading in an AP course should be both wide and deep." My students desperately need materials to read.

My students come from a low income, inner city area where they are required to pass a state exam in order to graduate.

The materials they are reading in school should adequately prepare them for college. The AP course should expose them to texts that will help prepare them for the exam. They are curious learners who are trying to become someone who is educated and learned.

My Project

Donating books for them to read in the AP Lit & Comp course will enable them to be ready for the exam. It will give them exposure to literature that is both classic and contemporary. Mature readers in this type of rigorous course need books of greater difficulty that will challenge them. A donation will give them the tools they need to succeed on the exam and also in college. They deserve to have literature that is deep and enlightening.

If you donate, you will enable these students to compete with other communities in the area.

They will be reading challenging books and broadening their reading horizons. It will impact their success rate on the AP exam in a most positive way. Donate and make a difference.
