Students worked on Step 1 of the Build-a-Synthesis-Prompt Research Project. Topics will be reported to me at the start of class on Friday. Any spare time was spent starting Step 2 of the project or reading Huck Finn. Homework: read/annotate through ch. 35 by 2/9; complete any additional work you need to do to pick a topic for 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.
