Advanced Composition

Advanced Composition is a writing course for college preparation. Students will cover the basics of several essay types that may include: personal narrative, definition essay, comparison essay, cause-effect essay, and persuasive argumentation. Additionally, Advanced Composition students will write an impromptu essay (required by SAT, ACT, and many dual credit entry tests).
Students will be introduced to and will practice several pre-writing strategies to help discern what to write in Advanced Composition. Grades 10th to 12th
