Rising juniors and seniors attended a meeting during the last-ever morning LEAD about AP classes and summer work. Dr. Dwulit gave a brief address before allowing the teachers to talk about their classes and what students would need for summer work.
Several of the current sophomores seemed to think that the meeting was unhelpful. “It very easily could have been an email,” said Sadie Walsh.
“I didn’t learn much of anything. But I was surprised at how little summer work there was,” Kayla Geouque said.
Sadie also said that the way the summer work was distributed was confusing: “All the summer work should have been either [going] to the teacher to get it or [going] to the assembly to get it. It was really confusing to have to go to the assembly for the English work but then get some, but not all, of the other work from the teacher.”
However, the most notable event of the assembly for many sophomores was the insufficient number of books for the AP Language students. Several students were left without a copy of The Outliers, one of the books for summer reading.
The high sign-up number for AP Lang was a shock to a few students. One sophomore, who asked to remain anonymous, remarked: “I was surprised at the number of people who think they’re qualified to take AP Lang.”
