Murguia's AP Lit
Welcome back!  Whether this is your first time in an AP class or you are an AP veteran, it is my hope to make this class a valuable and enjoyable experience for you.  We will be reading and discussing some of the most important and influential pieces of literature in history.  We will work as a team to improve all of our analysis and test-taking skills in order to maintain the expectations of AP classes at RHS.  Best of all, we're going to have fun doing it.  You're all seniors and this should be the best of your four years at RHS.
