AP Exam looms - Students shift into high gear in both AP Prep and Hamlet. Lear is cut short, largely due to last week's field trip. Hamlet will overrun past the vacation in 3 of 4 sections - additional segments applied. Deep reading was preformed with the 3rd Soliloquy and the station lesson when well but written results are disappointing.
