Due to various factors, I postponed the Huck Finn test from next Monday to next Friday. In class today, we went over the Synthesis prompt/essay from the mock exam. After discussing the prompt and sources, students re-wrote body paragraphs — one about who or what deserves a monument or memorial, and another about how do we best build a monument or memorial. Homework: finish Huck Finn if you haven’t already.

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.
