In B7, we got caught up on those Orwell prompt outlines. In B8, we did some final ACT practice. In both classes, we finished the Orwell prompt outlines, discussed Argument sources, and then students wrote their last Argument practice essay. Homework: Capote Part 2 is due next 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.
