Composition II

Building on the skills learned in Composition I, students will apply these skills to a variety of genres in Composition II. They will begin learning about common ways they’ll be expected to communicate in the world today, starting with writing a blog and then creating a slideshow. After learning how to develop their style in informal writing, they will learn how to adjust this style for academic writing. Students will learn how to craft a persuasive essay that supports a thesis statement. These skills will serve as a foundation for the research paper through which they will learn how to integrate research effectively and ethically. At the end of the year, students will interact with model examples of various genres from personal essays to playwriting. Classes include presentation of lessons, frequent in-class processing activities, and immediate teacher feedback. Students will be trained to critique their own work and the work of their peers with intention and respect. Their writing assignments will assess their understanding of the class content and outside reading assignments. Homework will average around 4 hours per week.
