English Rocks!
Welcome to AP Language and Composition!  I am glad you are here!
We are going to start the school year with intensive SAT/PSAT preparation.  We will spend quite a bit of time on the analysis and practice of the critical reading and  writing portions of the SAT/PSAT and also work on writing the SAT essay because your year group  will still have to write it.  
These skills will transition nicely into practice for the AP Language and Composition exam, which requires students to answer 54 multiple choice reading questions and write three essays, one of which is very similar to the SAT essay question.
For our first block, please bring printed copies of your summer assignment and something to write with.  By Wednesday, Mrs. Rose and I would like you to have a copy of Truman Capote's In Cold Blood. There is a free PDF version online that you can access, but you will need to have the Adobe Reader App so that you can annotate your text as you read. By Wednesday, you should also have your College Board SAT practice book because we will begin those practices very quickly.
I have attached the AP Info Sheet for you here for those of you who want to do some school preparations this week .
It's going to be an awesome year, and I can't wait to get started!
Below is the link to the summer reading assignment in case you still need access to it.
