We watched a video to help review the first half of The Allegory of the Cave before reading and discussing the second half and talking about what and how Plato is arguing through this essay. We also talked briefly about first impressions of Nickel and Dimed. Homework: read and annotate the Maine chapter in N&D for next Monday.
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.
