Advanced Composition

A one-trimester college-preparatory course, Advanced Composition further develops and refines writing skills introduced in other composition courses.  This course provides students frequent opportunities to write for different audiences and purposes, following the writing process.  Models are studied and the writing styles of the authors are analyzed. Increased emphasis is placed on language and style.  This course encourages student-writers to experiment.  Senior writers are encouraged to submit entries for the Iselman Writing Contest (a contest for La Porte High School students) and to submit entries for the Reflections magazine (La Porte High School's literary magazine). Final drafts are composed on word processors and follow the MLA style.
