Today is the day I’ve been working on preparing my students for since the first day of school. Today 59 of my students will take their AP World History exam. For most of them, this is their first ever AP exam.
Just like them, I have a mixed bag of emotions going into today’s test. With this being the first year that I taught this class, I’m hopeful that I did enough to help them prepare for the exam. I’m optimistic that they listened to my last minute advice about how to approach the exam and to not stay up all night cramming. I’m nervous about the prompts that the College Board selected this year for the three essay topics. I’m also nervous about how my students will do on the exam.
One thing is for certain: I’m hoping for the best and crossing my fingers that they will all earn the scores that I know that they’re capable of. Until I receive their scores n July, I’ll be doing my best to remind myself that I did all that I could to help prepare them for this exam.
QOTD: When you were in high school did you take any AP exams? What emotions did you experience going into your exams?
