Lots more work in Google Classroom today (and for the next few days). We finished discussing the This I Believe essays we listened to last class, and then students started listening to a few more essays, this time of their own choosing. Any spare time in class was spent working on the Independent Novel Essay due in about a week. Homework: get caught up on any TIB work you didn’t finish in class; make some progress on those novel essays.
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.
