Advanced Placement English classes

Manhattan teacher helps immigrant students excel in Advanced Placement English classes

None of the students at the Manhattan Academy for Arts and Language can speak English when they enter the school.

In fact, many start without any significant formal education or literacy skills.

But tireless English teacher Lauren McCoy has figured out how to meet the needs of all her students, and quickly build their literacy and language ability.

McCoy is now teaching one of the school’s first-ever Advanced Placement classes. She’s taking students who just learned English to the next level, where they’re writing strong rhetorical analysis essays and taking the AP exam.
