Thursday in AP Language and Comp was like any other day in the junior Advanced Placement English class. The students turned in either an argument or a creative assignment, reviewed 50 Latin root words, logged in to their AP College Board account to see their progress check from Unit One, and then blasted through 100 pages of Mark Twain’s best written and least read book, Joan of Arc. Acting some passages, analyzing the claims of other paragraphs, and relishing Twain’s obvious admiration for his favorite heroine, JPII students had a rich if demanding day in English!
