I gave students information about the AP test in May to start off class today, and they got time on the Chromebooks to complete their registration for this important test. It is my expectation that all AP Lang students register for and take the test! Afterwards we quickly discussed course registration for next year. We spent the rest of the class talking about how to read visual sources from some examples I provided from previous AP Lang tests. Homework: get part 1 of your independent novel read and annotated by Monday.
AP Lang B
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.
