Success!


I got an e-mail from AP audit that my curriculum was approved. I was not worried about it not being approved. I don’t teach in a place that would blame me or look down on what I was doing because of this audit. My results over the years speak for themselves. At least in this area, criticism is not forthcoming. I just don’t feeling like doing any more work. It took too much time to write this curriculum, time I could have spent doing other things, like writing on this blog and reading other people’s blogs. Principal Suit should be happy about this. The AP status really does nothing for me personally, but does make his school look better on paper. I doubt it if he will even bother to say thanks when he passes me in the hall.

PS I found a Panera Bread near my parent's house. It is much better than the parking lot for using a computer. I'm coming home tonight, back to my regular Internet connections.

Congratulations! It's nice when events like this can give you a sense of validation.

I love Panera. I especially have a weakness for their orange scones.

I feel that way about cinammon scones.

The AP audit is one of those things that gets me angry for a moment at someone other than Bloomberg and his Chancellor.

First they put all sorts of pressure on districts and schools to set up many more AP courses than they should, and to push in many more kids than they should, and now, after a good bit of watering down, they set up an audit to catch schools watering the curriculum down!

I am happy that you maintain good standards and were never in jeopardy. I think the same goes for the AP courses in my school. But some schools really got shafted on this one.
