Today we spent time reviewing MLA format for research and other papers. Students practiced with EasyBib to better understand how it builds a Works Cited for you. Then everyone had time to work on their Equity mini-research assignment, filling out note cards and collecting sources. Homework: through ch. 11 in Huck Finn is due next time; you may wish to knock out a few note cards for the mini-research project as well.
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.
