I got around to checking annotations in the Ehrenreich text today (due last class), and then students read a funny online essay which they responded to on Classroom and then we discused together. Students continued working on “Yes, but...” handouts for the ”Serving in Florda” and ”Scrubbing in Maine” chapters in Ehrenreich, punctuated by discussions of both chapters. Homework: finish Ehrenreich over break; annotations are due 12/1
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.
