Students did some more work for This I Believe in Google Classroom today. Students first reviewed their classmates’ responses to the Individual Listening Activity, and then they commented on two essays they’d already listened to as well as one knew one that they listened to today based on these recommendations. During the second half of class, everyone began brainstorming for their own TIB essays, including responding to a set of quick-write prompts. Homework: work 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.
