I'm taking this class not only because it is AP, but I have heard that this class will be useful to me outside the classroom setting. Former students of yours and current friends of mine have told me that this class will be beneficial to me in many ways. I'm excited to learn new ways to use technology and to see how open source learning will affect me. I'm nervous about how challenging this course may or may not be. My goals for this course is to obviously get an A and hopefully prepare for the next step in my life, which will hopefully be college. I expect to gain more knowledge not only about English, but also about technology, myself, and the world around me.
