Dallas is a real smarty pants; he can read Hamlet in half an hour! He can't wait to show off in his new Advanced Placement class. But there's more Play-doh than Plato and more colouring than Van Gogh. What kind of advanced class is this? Will Dallas figure out Kindergarten High or will he flunk? Who's the real smarty pants?

A fantastic competition piece that encourages students to develop strong characterizations.
