Should I "override" my teacher's suggestion and take AP World?
Hi, I just posted here yesterday, so sorry if I'm posting too much. I was considering taking AP World History next year (my sophomore year) and I asked my teacher if she thought I was ready. She recommended for me to take it junior year so that my writing skills and analyzing skills would improve (for the DBQs, SAQs, etc.). However, we haven't done any writing essays or anything so I think it may have been a general idea. I am in Honors English, which, I know, doesn't mean I'm an amazing writer. However, I don't think I'm trash at writing and the DBQs, SAQs, etc. seem like they're not too bad. Should I override my teacher's suggestion and still try to take AP World? Another thing is that at my school, teachers have to approve your course selections and I'm not sure if she would. She didn't specifically say that she wouldn't let me, so I'm not sure if she would approve my choice. Ask me questions if needed. Please help! Thank you!8 replies
