Entering 12th grade
– Chaminade students only
This intensive accelerated writing course is most suitable for incoming seniors who are already strong, proficient writers. Condensing the regular 18-week curriculum into four weeks, the course is designed to reinforce and further develop the critical reading, thinking, and writing skills that students need for success in their college courses. In a process-centered writing program that includes feedback and revision, students write research-based argumentative essays in a variety of rhetorical modes encountered at the college level. Each day, students will have either a rough draft or a final draft of an essay due. Successful completion of this course satisfies the Critical Thinking and Composition graduation requirement. This course is taught in a blended format, which means students should have regular and dependable access to the internet, a proficient understanding of the course’s software, and the maturity and discipline to be a self-motivated learner.Prerequisite
Students must have an “A” or a “B” in their most recent Honors English course or an “A” in their most recent College Prep English course. Students who do not meet this requirement must apply with the prior signed consent of the English Department Chairperson or the Academic Vice-Principal.
Summer 2021 Information - Summer school classes will be offered this upcoming summer. We anticipate at this time that we will be able to offer the classes in the normal hybrid summer format with the class being a combination of in person and virtual instruction. If, in June 2021, current state and local guidelines do not allow for in person instruction on campus, the class will still be offered in an entirely virtual format. All Chaminade summer school classes are UC/CS and NCAA approved classes.
