Color me ignorant, but was does AP stand for in AP english?
Hmmm, Mrs. Something-or-Another who was so demanding on correct grammar and punctuation. She was 10th grade english/debatish kinda class. I cannot say the word “Got” or “Ain’t” (two words she forbid in class) without thinking of whatever her name is. I learned from her that I have little fear of public speaking.
Mrs. I-Forget-Her-Name in 10th grade who taught creative writing. Entered a couple of my stories into a national contest.
Mrs. Quiet-Voice who taught literature. 11th grade.I win alot of Jeopardy lit questions because of her teachings.
Whomever the teacher was that introduced Shakespeare to me. (9th grade)I still remember the migraine I got watching my first Shagspeare play ( Love’s Labor Lost) trying to translate the Bard’s word into Shirley Language. I was mesmerized and I still get a migraine with the first viewing of a Shakespearian movie/play. After the 2nd or 3rd run something clicks in my head and Poof, it’s like a second language of sorts.
Oh, and how can I forget Mr. Stackhouse, who was a Detroit Homocide cop for 25 years before teaching. He was the one who told us that a dead body smells like marijuana smoke. And years later, sitting in my 3rd viewing of Rocky Horror, the smell of reefer going up around me, my gullible nitwit friend said, “What’s that smell?” too which I responded, " Oh, just a dead rotting body."
It’s the only thing I remember of his class.
