• COURSE INFORMATION

    Comp is a semester-long senior English elective to prepare students for college and career writing and communication. For students, writing is a key means of asserting and defending claims, showing what they know about a subject, and conveying what they have experienced, imagined, thought, and felt.  Specific semester goals:

    1.       Take task, purpose, and audience into careful consideration, choosing words, information, structures and formats deliberately

    2.       Use technology strategically when creating, refining, and collaborating on writing

    3.       Efficiently gather information, evaluate sources, and cite material accurately, reporting findings from research and analysis of sources in a clear and cohesive manner

    4.       Develop the flexibility, concentration, and fluency to produce high-quality first drafts as well as the capacity to revise and reflect upon participation in the writing process

     

    In order to accomplish these goals, we will be completing various assignments:

    ·         Diagnostic Essay

    ·         College Entrance Essay

    ·         Persuasive Letter
