We spent our shorted class today holding a Socratic seminar for Nickel and Dimed and the related sources students found for homework today. Homework: finish the seminar reflection, though you should have turned that in before leaving today; work on revised/late TIB and novel essays!
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.
