Description: College Prep Writing will prepare students for college-level writing.  The class will focus on expository writing, specifically interpretive essay, persuasive essay, and personal narrative.  To this end, students will develop a writing process that includes prewriting, drafting, revision, editing, and publishing; use concrete evidence to support arguments; study and apply syntactical patterns and rhetorical devices to compose powerful sentences; study Aristotelian appeals (logos, ethos, and pathos) as methods of persuasion; review grammar and punctuation rules to become precise writers and adept editors; acquire an awareness of their reader; and discover their unique writing voice, and practice many other skills necessary to writing at the college level.  Students will have weekly writing and grammar assignments of varying length.  Students should expect 3-4 hours of homework per week.  This class is worth a full English credit.  This class taken along with College Prep Literature meets the requirements of an Honors Level English class.
