Equity and Access
AP Annual Conference Submission
This research based session focuses on high achieving Hispanic females in AP classes discussing how to better engage, connect and motivate these students. Hispanics are the largest minority group in the US, and more Hispanic females enroll in AP classes and take AP tests in higher numbers than do Hispanic males, therefore, it is important that educators are aware of the intersection of race, gender, and class in their lives that directly impacts their educational experiences, goals, and their futures. This session will focus on how race, gender, and class intersect in high school AP classes, and how teachers can better connect and challenge these young Hispanic women.
