This course is the equivalent of an introductory college-level Composition course. Through intensive guided practice and the careful analysis of texts, students will hone their analytical and argumentative writing skills. Major topics considered include the analysis of rhetorical situation to frame a writer’s strategic choices; a writer’s claims and use persuasive evidence in support of those claims; large and small-scale organization into lines of reasoning; and stylistics possibilities, effects and choices. Students will focus on all aspects of the writing process: ideation, organization, composition, reflection and revision. On successful completion of this course, students will be prepared to sit the AP English Language and Composition AP exam.
