Course Description: Welcome to AP Composition. This is a college level course that is designed to help students gain an understanding of the principles of effective writing. As a student in this class, you will be required to write and read as often as possible. You will study and analyze works of prose from various fields and periods primarily in American Literature. Much of the work studied wlll be non-fiction. These works will serve as models of effective styles of writing. Such works may have the purpose to describe, narrate, argue, define, classify, etc. You will then be expected to write with such purposes in mind and develop your own unique writing style. Finally, the organized study of the structures of sentences, paragraphs, and larger discursive patterns will introduce you to the semantic, structural, and rhetorical resources of the English language. This will prepare you for both the A.P. exam in May and the Common core Exam in June.

Materials: To help ensure success in this class, please organize your materials in the following manner:

1) Looseleaf Three-Ring Binder that is divided into the following sections:

  • Literature
  • Modes of Writing
  • Vocabulary
  • Newspaper Articles
  • Elements of Style/Grammar Notes
  • AP practice exams/essays

It is a good idea that you reserve ONE looseleaf binder for this class ONLY so that you may fit all of the needed materials throughout the year.

2) A portfolio folder containing all writing and a table of contents for work completed each quarter. This will be given to you some time in September and must be kept with you at all times..

3) A writer's notebook to complete free-writes, ideas, and rough drafts of assignments. We willl discuss possibilities for this during the first few weeks of school.

**You are also expected to have the relevant textbook(s) with you every class period. In addition, you should have a pen, relevant notebook(s),highlighters, and appropriate paper for composition.

Top

Writing Assignments: The College Board recommends that students devote approximately 1-1/2 hours per day to reading and writing to improve your compositional skills and prepare for the AP exam in May. Therefore, you will write a number of papers (500 word minimum/2 typed pages) on topics assigned in advance. A heavy emphasis will be placed on revision, peer editing and evaluation, and student-instructor conferences. Essay assignments are to be typed, using 12 point font, double-spaced, on 8 ½ x 11 paper. You may also be asked to digitally submit them through Turnitin.com. We will meet with Ms. Ryder to learn how to do this.

No late papers or assignments will be accepted unless approved by the teacher. If you come into school late or leave early the day an assignment is due, it is expected that you will submit your work to me in person or via e-mail atpgulitti@jerichoschools.org. It is suggested that you save all work on a computer and/or flash drive and make a hard copy for all assignments. You should also consider getting a Dropbox account or use the cloud, which allows you to save your documents and access them on any computer with access to the Internet.

**The “excuse” that your printer was “not working, etc.” will not be accepted. You may e-mail your written work to yourself so that you can print it in school during a free period or before school, or you may e-mail it to my school address, which is pgulitti@jerichoschools.org It is also expected that your work is printed before class.

Top

Class Participation: Participation in discussion is an integral part of this course and should affect your grade in a positive manner. You are expected to come to class prepared to engage in discussion of the assigned readings. The talk you contribute should be based on thoughtful reflection, should pose responsive questions, and should help to extend thinking of the group. You must also be an active listener, one who is respectful and attentive to the need of each member in the group. You are encouraged to bring to class articles, clippings, cartoons, etc. that you feel reflect the ideas and issues explored in this course.

To help ensure success in these areas, a daily participation sheet system has been designed to hold you accountable. Such a sheet will be filled out by you and monitored by me daily. It will account for your class participation grade each marking period.

Note on cell phones, i-pods, and other technological devices: These are considered major distractions to class instruction, so the use of these items and their visibility are NOT permitted during class time (unless given permission by me) and will have a negative effect of your class participation grade. All devices are to be TURNED OFF and placed in the designated space of the classroom when you arrive for class.

Top

Attendance: It is expected that you will be seated at your desk with the required materials when the bell rings. This will maximize our learning time and prevent unnecessary interruptions. Attendance of all classes is necessary and will help improve the quality of your work and affect your overall grade.

If you are legally absent the day a long-term assignment is due, it is expected that you will still submit the assignment the day it is due. It should be submitted to me via my e-mail address, and I will send you a response confirming receipt of your work. However, if you are absent and a homework assignment is given, you are expected to complete that assignment and submit it the day after you return. It is best to take advantage of the Homework page available through this site and through Canvas. If you are absent for in-class group activities, I may give you an alternative assignment and you will need to confer with me about options. If you know beforehand that you will be absent, please inform me so that I can help you plan your makeup work.

Top

Grading: Keep all graded assignments/essays in your notebook for reference and fill out the grade sheet you will be given this year. Don't lose any records of your grades!. Your grade each marking period is based on the following:

  • Essays completed at home
  • Revised essays
  • In class timed essays/tests
  • Collection and analysis of newspaper articles
  • Class participation (attendance), homework**, peer review, and discussion

**You will only be allowed to make up one missed homework assignment each quarter. Such assignments must be presented to me during an extra help session only.

Once I have graded work and posted it on PowerSchool, class time will be devoted to the return of graded assignments, whereby you will make a record of them on the grade sheet provided.

Your grade foreach marking period will be determined by the number of points that you earn, divided by the possible number of points available (this number will vary each marking period). This final number will then be converted into the letter grade that you receive on your report card.

Your grade for the year will be based on the numerical average of all four marking periods and your score on the NY Common Core English Exam.

In order to complete this course successfully, you must be willing to devote your time and effort. If you do this, I promise that you will notice a remarkable change in your own writing and gain an appreciation for the great writers of our literary canon. You could also obtain one year of college credit and /or advanced placement in college composition by good performance on the Advanced Placement Examination in May.

I look forward to working with you and witnessing your growth as a writer.

Here is the game plan for next week:

a. Review all grammar notes from Elements of Style in preparation for a quiz on Thursday, 3/15. We began reviewing rules 7 and 8 on the dash and colon today.

b. The final copies of the Good Writing Files assignment will be due on Friday, 3/16 for a bonus point. If you do not submit your work on Friday, then it must be submitted on Tuesday, 3/20 ONLY.

a. Neat copy of each excerpt from Gatsby

c. Your analysis paper for each excerpt that is typed and double-spaced (15 points per each analysis)

This entire project will count for 40 points in total (30 points for the analysis, plus 5 points for the annotations of both files, and 5 points for the self-reflection). I am giving you the extra time to allow you to come to extra help sessions if necessary.

***Please include the following information at the completion of the second good writing file (for 5 points of the project grade):
