An AP Reading: The Bridges of Jefferson County
Recently, I attended the AP Reading for the Exam in English Lit in Louisville, KY. This was my 6th time attending this major professional event. While we were not allowed to take any photos during the Reading, I did take many pictures of the many bridges in and around and over the Ohio River connecting Indiana to Kentucky. It’s a really beautiful place, a bit old and worn, but still worth the visit for work or travel. Louisville is dominated culturally by the University of Louisville, its campus is south of the main downtone area, but the Yum Center, where the Cardinals (men’s NCAA Division 1 basketball) play and other major events are held.
Here are some photos, and their ‘scores’ per the AP rubric:
Rail-trail Bridge, morning sun, Score: 5
The Bridges connect for me to the Summer Bridge Program at UM Comprehensive Studies Program (CSP), where I will be teaching WRI 100 for a second year. Bridges are both a feat of engineering, and a metaphor. Louisville is lucky to have so many ways across the Ohio River, both by foot and by car + train.
