Today was our Socratic seminar on prisons. Students used their own sources plus the “Yes, but...” handout from Thursday. The reflection was completed in class and a few students continued work on analyzing the argument in “Serving in Florida.” I did not have time to check the Maine chapter annotations, so those will now be due on Wednesday.
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.
