More Resources for Advanced Studies

Help me give my students an advantage for May. My AP students face limited resources compared to larger school systems. Help me equal the playing field for them.

My Students

Our school is located in an extremely rural area of south Mississippi. We are surrounded by larger school districts with ten of the largest, wealthiest, and highest-performing in the state located no less than 120 miles from us. Our students are viewed as "thugs, drug dealers, and or rednecks" and treated the exact same way. Because of this, our students are often overlooked by the state, region, and community for funding.

My students are some of the best out there; however, they've been told by their circumstances that they are worth less than those other schools around them.

Please help me prove to my students that they are just as valuable and meaningful as all other students. While our students are genuinely good kids, they are often given no chance. My students range from low income to upper income. Within one room, we can have several different stories and struggles present. My kids are all too often discounting themselves because everybody else discounts them. With these books, I hope to improve literacy in the classroom

My Project

These study books will help my World History AP students in preparation for the AP exam in May. They are already at several disadvantages compared to others. Other schools emphasize the importance of the AP classroom for those students who are college bound. However, in my district, little to no emphasis is placed on these classes. My students walk into my class with little to no preparation.

The study books I've ordered will help level the playing field for my students.

These books will be sent home with my students to help reinforce their in-class learning. These books will be used by the students as an added benefit to help them achieve to the utmost of their abilities. These books will give the students additional study materials and allow them access to additional information and teaching on the AP Test. These books break down the different writing skills, content requirements, and thinking skills necessary for the students on the test. Most of these books will be sent home as a homework accompaniment so that students can practice their skills at home and on breaks.
