Whats up with English I PreAP?
  • English I PreAP introduces students to the
    rigors, expectations, and terminology of advanced
    placement study in the English Language Arts.
    Students will be trained how to analyze
    literature how to draw meaning and significance
    from a writers choices. With the understanding
    that all texts are rhetorical, students will be
    taught how to both recognize and use rhetorical
    strategies (including stylistic devices).
    Considerable time will also be spent mastering
    the rules of the English language, improving
    composition skills, and developing a mature
    vocabulary. By the end of the course, students
    should find themselves more effective users of
    the English language.

    is not appropriate to do so (texting, recording,
    taking pictures, listening to music, etc.), I
    will take it and keep it until the end of the
    period. You will also serve a detention before
    school the next day.

    non-compliance. In addition to taking up your
    phone for the period, I will contact your parents
    and write a discipline referral.

    agenda.

    bans all forms plagiarism and cheating including
    copying cutting and pasting presenting
    collaborative work as independent work
