Students completed their third and final AP pre-assessment essay — the Argument essay. We spent some time going over the independent novel list, and students got the opportunity to research some of the titles on the list. Then everyone worked more on annotating Of Mice and Men — finishing chapter 1 and starting chapter 6. Homework: finish annotating the first and last chapters in Mice for our Socratic Seminar on Thursday.
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.
