Welcome to AP English Language!
Welcome Students and Parents,
Thank you for visiting our class' website. I am excited to be starting my 19th year at AGHS. This is an amazing school and community; I feel lucky to be here. As we embark on our journey this fall, things look a little different. I will do my best to make sure that despite those differences, our coursework will continue to be rich, challenging, and engaging. We will read and write a lot. That is the nature of this class. Reading -- and thinking about what you read -- is the single factor that might have the biggest impact on how you evolve as a thinker and a writer. I will do my best to help all AP Lang. students grow as critical readers of a wide variety of texts. This is a class that requires students to be present, to communicate, to create. I am glad you are here. It is going to be a great year!
