    This course offers a critical-creative reading and annotating path to good composing practices at upper secondary and tertiary stages of learning. It aims to support your development of rhetorical strategies, literary analysis and critical composing practices.

    You will learn varying kinds of critical thinking needed to make choices – choices of creative purpose and the diction, detail, imagery, and syntax to fulfill it. You will learn the questions to ask to develop a research question and a tenable thesis statement. You will be given sources to support your learning to summarize, quote, cite and reference properly.  You will read different types of critical essays that offer various types of claims and well-supported arguments, all to support your understanding of how you may shape your essay.  You will increase your vocabulary, understanding of logical, ethical and emotional fallacies to avoid and boost confidence in your capacity for writing various types of essays and critical tasks.

    Though the focus of the class will be on composing various types of essays required by AP and IB Diploma Programs, several of those types pertain to SAT essay writing, such as the AP rhetorical analysis essay and IB literary commentary. Preparation for those, including annotating text and various pre-writing approaches can support SAT test takers to prepare for writing and essay well.
