  1. Dd took AP Lang (non-fiction) last year and is taking AP Lit (fiction) this year--her favorite subject. Different classes, different material as mentioned above. The classes teach very different techniques--very different styles of writing. Some of the schools Dd looked at give AP credit for both courses, some only give credit for one. She has throughly enjoyed both courses so that has been a bonus!
  2. DD will most likely take the AP exams for any APs she takes as she wants to get college credit and it is supporting documentation for her final transcript. She will not have three or four though.....her college application process will be much different as she will be applying for a BFA which requires auditions and more so I can't load her down with numerous APs! 😉
  3. I also highly recommend Blue Tent & Brigid Thompson! Super organized, very clear expectations, asynchronous, encouraging and helpful feedback! Also, the kids in the class are super! DD is currently in AP Lit now and took AP Lang last year with Blue tent and prior to that took Honors English 2--we are BIG fans. If I am remembering correctly, everyone in Blue Tent's AP Lit class scored a 4 or a 5 on the exam last year. 😃
  4. @StarfishI know you mentioned the MT boards on CC but did you search or post on the "Theatre/Drama Majors" board within CC? This is found by going to College Discussion / College Majors / Theater/Drama Majors. There are a lot of "discussions" under this section! There is also a thread under the Theatre/Drama Majors called "BFA Acting Class of 2023: preparation, prescreens, auditions, questions and support; " this is where all the acting majors seem to discuss auditions and other questions relating to anything BFA Acting related....I am sure you can post something under this thread about your audition at belmont---not sure if you have time to read the pages and pages of posts but they might be helpful. Break legs to your daughter!
  5. HI!!! Miss talking to you! School is going very well this year! Loving Blue Tent AP Lit & Mr D Pre Calc and she is self studying for APES & APUSH (with approved syllabus from College Board) plus ASL and other fun electives 🤗 Hope your school year is going well! Glad to hear all is going well with Edhesive AP Stats! Didn't realize the price went up to $600-$700 with no teacher!! Think we will pass especially since DD was not a fan of Adhesive AP Gov format and such. Might look at PAHS AP Stats or FLVS but thank you for the info on the course and for the heads up on the cost! Glad DS is learning and hope all goes well for AP exams--sure I will chat with you before that! Have a wonderful Holiday Season! 😄
  6. Thank you so much for your speedy response! I will check back in with you! I was trying to get a jump on it because I keep seeing things about having to select AP classes early this year due to College Board's new timelines.... 🙂 Appreciate the help!
  7. Beginning to think about which AP Stats class DD will take next year....@mirabillis and @daijobu how is the Edhesive class going? Any things you love? Don't like? Thorough? Easy to grade? Pacing? Work load? Any interaction with the actual teacher (Mr. Porinchak) or just via the videos? Also, I see that it is an approved AP Syllabus so are you listing it on DC's transcript as an AP class? DD took AP gov with Adhesive and didn't love it and we ended up switching so I am a little gun shy of taking another Adhesive class but wanted to see how the class was going for your kiddos? Thanks so much! **edited to add a few more questions.
  8. Those AP HUG times were crazy—you had to do what you could to save the situation!!! ?? Hope you sell it! ?
  9. Thanks Arcadia! Appreciate the help. Now to figure out how to tweak it to get college board to approve ?
  10. Does anyone have an AP Environmental Science approved syllabus using Friedland & Relyea's Environmental Science for AP 2nd edition they would be willing to share? I would be so very grateful. ? If not one using the Friedland text, any APES approved syllabus you would be willing to share? I have looked at the sample ones on CB....just need a little help. Thanks!
  11. Cathy Duffy has a review of the material from March 2016. She briefly talks about the curriculum and some of the sections you mentioned. .
  12. Hi John. At a very quick glance, it looks like the classifieds "for sale" link is working but the "browse categories" doesn't. I glanced at the "submit an advertisement" link and all seemed well but I don't have time to enter a product right now -- I will update after I have time to do that. From the classifieds section the "want to buy" and "swap" links still don't work. Also, on the main classifieds page if you click on the link(s) of the product(s) that are "expiring" soon those links don't work (at the very top of the classifieds section). The ads below in "for sale" do seem to link correctly. The "want to buy" ads don't link correctly but I don't know if that is because they are "expired." Thank you for working so hard on this! It does seem like you can see the for sale items and I think you can post an item.... ?
  13. This link does seem to work; however, clicking on the classifieds link or the swap board do not work....
  14. I am so glad to find this discussion. I hadn't used the classifieds section since the site update and just visited the area. I wanted to post materials in the classifies and when I went to the section I could only see a few ads--no searching ability or categories and can't post. Please let us know when the classifieds are fixed. Thank you so much for your help!!!
  15. So glad your son received his score! Thanks for checking on us. I also had to call several times. Dd put the wrong test date down on exam paperwork so they sent it to the "Office of Integrity!!!" ? Luckily, the school where she took the exam was SUPER helpful and sent them the seating charts, list of students taking exam, and some other documentation to verify Dd was indeed there on the day of the exam! Thank goodness for the AP Administrator--she was amazing and helpful. College Board were quite the alarmists about not being able to talk to us and only transferring us to the "Office of Integrity!" It is funny now but not at the time...we had no idea what was wrong. It was just a simple mistake of writing down the wrong date....Code 97! HA! Dd will never do that again but at least she got a great score! ?
