This class can have combined teachers of varied master levels – experienced or new.  The levels we cover can also range from 6th grade Pre-AP to 10th grade Pre-AP skills.  We will look at rigor and how to bring a Pre-AP classroom up to a rigorous level of reading and analyzing that our students need to not only be prepared for high school, but for the AP Exams and college also.
