The Weekly Word: April 28th, 2011

Yo Shmoop Scouts (and Jems, too):

We know it’s a stressful time of year at school. AP Exams. Finals. The hours (Who are we kidding? Days. Weeks.) of preparation to get your hair and dance moves just right for prom.

Lighten Up Folks:

  • Today is Harper Lee’s birthday. We heart Harper. We think everyone in Shmoopland should have at least one pet named Finch, Boo, or Scout. Check out our Harper Lee biography and our take on the classic To Kill A Mockingbird. Salute!
  • Geeks Gone Wild: Meet the Quadrocopter. A mutant helicopter. And it can juggle. We told you the future would be amaze-balls.

The 2011 AP Exams are basically a week away. But fear not, if you’ve been too busy with, oh, catching up with the folks on Jersey Shore, testing how many marshmallows you can fit in your mouth, or googling how many bird species produce milk (it’s three), we’ve got the stuff for you.

We offer 8 awesome prep courses, that will help you soar:
