After reviewing upcoming dates and topics for class, we spent today’s shortened class period discussing the second half of Huck Finn in preparation for Friday’s in-class AP Lit-style essay test over the novel. Homework: prepare for the test, and bring your second independent novel to class on Friday.
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.
