Students have reported that Prose Style is the single best feature of AP Lang & Comp. They say that regular practice with Prose Style has had the most positive impact on improving their writing.

Prose Style Schedule: Have typed work completed by the date(s) below.
 

PROSE STYLE SCHEDULE, Term 3-4, Fall 2009

All work must be typed per class requirements. Each complete assignment, including novel revisions, counts for 10 points in the writing category. NOTE: Keep the original and all revised copies together – I will expect you to turn them ALL in as a package when the final date is due. Failure to complete each draft with highlighted revisions will deduct 50% of your final assignment grade. No handwritten Prose Style work is accepted.) Please note that all Powerpoint notes from my lectures are available on my website vgrossen@tripod.com. You may copy/paste/print them for your use and review.
