After collecting copies of Huck Finn to check annotations, I had students work some more on research for the first part of class. Then I returned novels and we spent the rest of class discussing the first half of the book. Homework: read to the end of ch. 33 (p. 242) by Tuesday, 2/17.

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.
