Today was our recording day for TIB. Students used the GarageBand recording tutorial to first complete a practice recording and then record and submit their final draft TIB essay through Google Classroom. After finishing this, students began reading Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave,” which we will discuss next class. Homework: The Florida chapter in Ehrenreich must be read/annotated by next Monday.
College professors frequently lament the poor writing skills of the students who enter their classrooms, particularly straight out of high school. This course is designed to help you succeed in not only a freshman composition course, but in college altogether. Students will learn to think critically, read analytically, and communicate with clarity and confidence.
While students may earn college credit if they receive a 3, 4, or 5 on the AP English Language and Composition Exam (depending on their chosen college), the ultimate goal of this course is to prepare students for the rigors of college writing.
