Students worked some more on preparing to write their independent novel essays in Google Classroom at the start of class. We also went over the details of the novel essay and the rubric for the assignment. Then we began listening to some This I Believe essays, and we’ll continue with this next time. Homework: finish the prep assignment by 11:59 tonight.
AP English Language & Composition
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.
