OP 30. Untracking Advanced Placement English: Creating Opportunity is Not Enough
By Joan Kernan Cone
Summary: In this paper, Cone describes what happened when she opened up her Advanced Placement English class at an urban high school to any students who were willing to commit to a rigorous regimen of reading and writing. She discusses the changes she made in her teaching strategies in order to make success possible for all of her students, many of whom had never been in an advanced English class before.
