Today was our final day for This I Believe. Students who had not already finished tried to wrap up their writing and recordings and turned them in via Google Classroom. As they finished, everyone got started on reading Nickel and Dimed, the introduction and first chapter of which need to be annotated by Tuesday. We all then began working through the first half of The Allegory of the Cave. Homework: N&D intro and chapter 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.
