After a quick de-brief of yesterday’s Mock Exam, we discussed the start of Huck Finn, students’ questions, and satire. Students had some reading time, and then we talked about two articles about John Oliver. We watched a clip from his show in June on Net Neutrality, and we discussed his particular flavor of satire. Homework: read through the end of ch. 4 in Huck Finn.

SECOND SEMESTER, 2014–15
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.
