Independent Novel Essays were due at 7:30 this morning via Google Classroom. Students worked their way through more writing and revisions to the This I Believe Essays during class today; Wednesday will be a recording day. I also handed out copies of Nickel and Dimed today so that students could begin reading as they finished up their TIB essays. Homework: Try to finalize your draft of your TIB essay before the start of next class, which will be shortened due to late start.
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.
