AP Language and Composition

Miss Sandvick

2014-15


Primary Benefit: College Preparation

  • Colleges know AP classes are challenging.

  • This course will live up to the reputation. Therefore, you will be better prepared to tackle college courses.


Hargrove, Godin and Dodd: College Grade Point Averages

  • AP students who scored a 1 on AP Exams outperformed students who had taken neither AP nor dual enrollment

  • AP students who scored a 2 or higher on AP Exams outperformed all students

Source: Hargrove, Godin and Dodd, 2007


Primary Benefit: College Preparation

Experience a college-level test

The intensity of college exams catches far too many freshmen by surprise:

“Students who have prepared for and taken the AP Exams adapt more easily to taking college essay exams, and are especially skilled in including a thesis and a well-developed argument. They are also less intimidated by sophisticated, college-level multiple-choice questions that seek to test understanding over memorization.”

—Robert Blackey, Professor of HistoryCSU, San Bernardino
