We started class today reviewing the experience of taking the Mock Exam. Students received a spreadsheet with their multiple choice score as well as formulas to calculate their composite and AP scores. Students entered several possibilities for essay scores and improvements on multiple choice before moving on to some work about and discussion of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn. I collected books at the start of class to check annotations, but didn’t get to them in class, so I’m going to hang onto the books and push back the due date for the next set of annotations. More next week.
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.
