After the first week of AP Lit I can already say that I am comfortable. The class is structured for discussions rather than monotonous labor. I have participated each day in class and enjoyed hearing different perspectives from fellow students and Andrew. I have already built a solid foundation with our teacher. He allows us to call him by his first name and I think that is very humbling. Being on a first name basis, whether it being a teacher or a boss, puts you and the person in charge on the same playing field. I can already see a positive impact on my academics with this new relationship. The class also involves a lot of technology use. This is something that I enjoy the most because it helps us high school students become college ready. The first week was a blur and I cannot wait what the future holds in AP Lit and how I can apply these skills to real life.
