After reviewing the assignment and rubric, students really dug into starting their TIB drafts today during the first part of class on Google Classroom. After identifying and describing a belief and writing about some related anecdotes, students peer reviewed their drafts, looking particularly at fluency and transitions. Homework: independent novel essays are due Monday at 7:30 a.m.! If you have time, you might also work on your This I Believe essay this weekend.
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.
