This post is especially for my students going into 9th grade. For those of you who are planning to be in the AP Language Arts class, please tell me you've finished your reading & your annotations.
Okay, well....at least reassure me that you have finished the Wizard of Oz and are now diligently working on your science fiction choice....
Um...have you at least bought the books?
Seriously, you are down to less than 3 weeks. The assignment is tough. The class will be more so. It is a weeder--meaning, they make it intentionally difficult to make the people who are not serious about it leave.
The clock is ticking, my dears.....get started if you haven't already. And if you have? Well then, get finished! On the off-chance (judging by those of you I have spoken with recently) that you are finished, then good job! Go buy yourself a sno-cone to celebrate!
Best of luck to all of you!
