Practice Makes Perfect: AP Study Guides

My students need resources to help prepare them for the rigors of the Advanced Placement Language and Composition Test.

My Students

Dr. Martin Luther King once said, "The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character - that is the goal of true education."

My students are from South Los Angeles county, the majority of them are latinos, many are second language learners, and they attend a high school with more than 3000 students.

They are part of the Health, Science, and Medicine Academy at our high school.

My Project

I am requesting AP study guides for each student in class, and one set of flashcards that I will use as a daily warm-up to get class started. Students will use the study guides to help them be familiar with the testing style and format used by The College Board for the Advanced Placement test in May.

My AP students are from a lower socio-economic community where most are the first in their family to graduate from high school, and most hope to go on to college.

Passing their AP exams allows them to test out of their GE courses thereby saving them both money and time once they start their college education. This would be a huge advantage that I hope for them to earn for themselves.
