Advanced Composition


This course is designed and strongly recommended for college-bound students who seek to improve their abilities in multiple modes of critical writing. Through the use of a process approach, students will improve their composition structure, logical organization, responses to literature, and breadth of their vocabularies.

Students will write four main process papers, each in a different rhetorical mode. They may be description, narrative, division & classification, definition, compare/contrast, or college essay. Students should expect to write every day.

Students may not take this course if they have taken, or are taking Advanced Placement Language.
