Dr. Nancy Shankle, professor of English, was selected to
participate this June in the annual reading and scoring of
the College Board's Advanced Placement Examinations in
English Language at Trinity University in San Antonio.
Each year the AP Program, sponsored by the College Board,
gives many capable high school students an opportunity to
take rigorous college-level courses and examinations and,
based on their exam performance, to receive credit and/or
advanced placement when they enter college.
More than 1.1 million examinations in 18 disciplines were
evaluated by over 4,200 faculty consultants from high
schools and universities across North America. Drawn from
various ethnic groups and from every state, these men and
women are some of the best high school and college educators
in the United States and Canada. They represent some of the
finest academic institutions in North America.
The AP Reading is one of the few settings in which
academic dialogue between high school and college educators
is fostered and strongly encouraged. "The Reading draws upon
the talents of some of the finest teachers and professors
that America has to offer, " said Dr. Wade Curry, AP Program
Director at the College Board. "It fosters professionalism,
allows for the exchange of ideas and strengthens the
commitment to students and to teaching. We are very grateful
for the contributions of talented educators like Dr.
