Coming Up…

No, not a cool art exhibit or awesome concert. Coming up are... the AP exams. I have heard May referred to as the "hell month" and "month of horror." I have also heard my AP US History teacher grumble since January about the snow days. The AP classes at CV got to come in early last week to cover material while the majority of the students at the school, at least those not taking the WASL, got to sleep in. It was helpful, though.

The College Board AP site is here, and not surprisingly "hell month" is not mentioned.

Are you in AP classes? Do you enjoy them? What are you doing, or will you be doing, to prepare for the exams? Have you taken any AP exams before?


In 2006, then-editor Steve Smith of The Spokesman-Review had the idea of starting a publication for an often forgotten audience: teenagers. The Vox Box was a continuation of the Vox, an all-student staffed newspaper published by The Spokesman-Review. High school student journalists who staffed the Vox made all content decisions as they learn about the trade of journalism. This blog's mission was to give students an opportunity to publish their voices. The Vox Box and the Vox wrapped up in June 2009, but you can follow former staffers' new blog at
