Students turned in their part 3 annotations and then did more reading, questioning, and researching to prepare for our Socratic seminar on the Texas license plates issue, which we held during the second half of class. Everyone wrote their reflections in class and turned them in before leaving. Homework: part 4 annotations are due next Wednesday.

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.
