In our short class today, we talked about online sources and how to decide if they’re credible.. Students completed a practice activity on Google Classroom with some articles I had selected. We discussed these, as well as the requirement for annotations on any sources for the research paper that are not the equivalent of print sources. Homework: continue reading Huck Finn; through ch. 22 is due on Tuesday.

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.
