Two views ...

... of advanced placement English: AP English and literary knowledge and `A Discipline of Knowledge'.

Patrick writes, "Like David Myers I am a graduate of high-school Advanced Placement English classes, though my experience seems to have been more pleasurable and lastingly worthwhile than his." The reason for that would seem to be Jan Viscomi, further proof that we are educated not by schools or programs but by people, called teachers. Like Patrick, I didn't like The Return of the Native when I read it in high school, but when I read it again college (though I have an odd interpretation of it).
