Since I am away today, it’s a great day for a work day. Complete the note card research project (Equity in Schools) that you began on 1/12. Your 6–10 (or more!) note cards must be submitted to the filing box by the end of class. Please review this note card template if you don’t remember how to format your note cards from last week. Likewise, you must submit two documents via Google Classroom: the pre-attached template for your topic and inquiry question(s) and your Works Cited generated from EasyBib and attached at the very end of the project. This is also due by the end of class. If you finish early, work on those Huck Finn annotations. Homework: annotations through ch. 19 are due on Friday.
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.
