“And all the voices, all the goals, all the yearnings, all the sorrows, all the pleasures, all the good and evil, all of them together was the world. All of them together was the stream of events, the music of life.” Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha
Welcome to College Composition!
What to expect this year: 1. Prewriting, writing, rewriting, revision, thinking about writing, reading about writing, etc. The point of this course is to improve your writing. The process isn't easy. It takes dedication on your part and mine. Since you signed up for the class, I assume you are up for the challenge. I love teaching writing so I'm ready to go. 2. Along with the writing, you will be reading. Many of our readings will come from the non-fiction textbook, but we will also overlap with the English IV curriculum in places and get a sampling of British Literature. 3. Vocabulary and Grammar: You'll see Senior Vocabulary and Senior Grammar tabs on this website. You will be responsible for learning vocabulary and specific concepts in grammar. Quizzes will be every other Friday. 4. We will be engaging in the college acceptance process. We will work on college entrance essays, applications, scholarship material as part of this class. 5. Discussion and participation are vital to this class. You must be willing to discuss the readings, talk about your writing, and engage in academic discourse. 6. This is a college class. Academically, that means be responsible for yourself. Socially, that means no high school drama. Leave it at the door.
