After returning the annotated copies of Lincoln’s second inaugural and reminding students to bring their independent novels on Wednesday, we reviewed the PEAP table (rhetorical situation) for the Steve Jobs Standford speech from last week. Students re-annotated the Lincoln prompt and then worked on his speech’s rhetorical situation. Homework: independent novels next time!
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.
