According to the College Board, “An AP English Language and Composition course requires students to become skilled readers of prose written in a variety of rhetorical contexts and skilled writers who compose for a variety of purposes” (College Board, English Language and Composition Course Description, 2014).
Through close reading and frequent and varied writing, this course seeks to provide students with opportunities to become increasingly aware of the art of rhetoric and how language can work effectively not only in the readings they encounter but also in their own writing and composition.
Class Expectation: I typically ask students to follow only one simple rule: Be Appropriate.
Class Wish List
The biggest request I have of parents is to encourage your students to read. Set aside time for the entire family to have at least an hour of time each day without the distraction or business of social media, tv, radio, internet, etc. Find a place in the day for you and your child to have a focused, undistracted period of time.
Getting in Touch
I will send periodic reminders and updates for students regarding due dates and assignments as well as other class information via the Remind messaging program. The information below will allow you to have access to these messages.
