Re: Your GPA in High School

I have always hovered just below a 4.0. It is SO frustrating to have a GPA of 3.9 that simply will not round up. It makes me want to burn my report cards and transcripts.

Re: AP U.S. History

Some people have advised you not to continue taking AP US History. Others have discussed the unfairness of the AP organization in general. I will go ahead and admit first that the AP Board has two faces, each one different depending on who you ask. If you ask them, your teacher, or your school, thei...

Re: Do high school teachers ever use "Powerpoint" for teaching?

In an attempt to "go green" at my high school, teachers use *only* power points (instead of print outs, worksheets, etc). The power points are projected onto a screen with a digital overhead projector. White boards are used too, but that is becoming spare due to some major budget cuts in t...

Re: Jane Austen, back from the Dawn of the Dead

I'm about half way done with my copy of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and I rather enjoy it. It was a nearly painful experience to endure reading the original, but now that the text has been hijacked and turned into a zombie thriller...well, need I say more?

Re: Awesome Teacher Quotes

I have had the most epic AP US History teacher for the past two years (in AL we usually have two years of American history). Although he is normally quite intimidating; once he gets talking on a subject that he likes, he loosens up quite a bit and throws in all sorts of humor that leaves the class p...

Re: Books that made you cry

The Road and The Things They Carried really got the waterworks going for me. Many of the details were absolutely painful . And you guys are gonna kill me for these, but I also cried in New Moon when Edward leaves Bella. Just keep in mind I went through nearly the same exact experience the previous ...

Re: Books you had to read for school that you could not stand

I rather enjoyed Beloved and As I lay Dying , but that particular style (post-modern, I believe?) is an acquired taste. Much like Indian food - when you first try out you say, "WTF IS GOING ON IN MY MOUTH?!" but if you're brave enough for for a second or third helping, you find you like it...

The Genuine Article: A Historian Looks at Early America by Edmund Morgan is a wonderful set of scholarly essays that outline important movements in early American history, starting with Native Americans and continuing through the post-Revolutionary years. It's a great book to help boost your perspe...

Re: ACT scores

Man, all of these scores make me feel really inferior, and I'm a pretty smart kid. I'm not even gonna bother posting mine. :oops:
