I'm sorry if I painted a bleak picture of AP art. It wasn't my intention.
Maybe it's because my mood is bleak. It's been a tough year - I had 23 in
the class this year. I found it impossible to keep the level of work were it
should be for this class.
Each year it seems harder and harder to get the kids to work on their own.
When I first started teaching AP I had many students who took classes on the
outside or participated in the Saturday classes at schools in Philadelphia.
Now, their jobs are more important.
In my previous post I just wanted to stress how it important it is to have
students that are serious about completing the requirements.
I'm happy about the new regulations for 2002. I haven't studied it
thoroughly yet, but it seems to be a little more open to different kinds of
Ken - I commend you on being able to get so many students to complete the
portfolio successfully. I wish I could do better.
