    Advanced Composition is a one-semester writing course for college-bound students who enjoy reading and who are interested in sharpening their composition skills before entering college.  Students learn to write a variety of essays beyond literary analyses, including forms such as personal narration, definition, comparison, classification, and argumentation.  This class emphasizes the art of revision, focusing on the formal study of usage and grammar, the mastery of rhetorical strategies, and the careful reading of texts as models.  In this semester course, students will complete an independent reading assignment and plan, write, workshop, revise and conference five papers.  A student must earn at least a C- in Advanced Composition I to enroll Advanced Composition II.
