Full course description

Course Overview

This course continues from the previous semester course, and is designed to be the equivalent of the composition course usually taken during the first college year. It will also prepare students for the AP Language and Composition exam given in May of each year. This course will continue the study of nonfiction writing begun in First Semester, focusing on matters of style--the use of subordination, coordination, loose and periodic sentences and an understanding of how these can be used to create rhythm, balance and emphasis. As students become more aware of rhetorical elements and their effects, they are encouraged to incorporate these into their own writing as well.

This course is designed for high-school seniors.
