Day & Time: Wednesday 10:45-11:55
Mentor: Jon Alston
This is as close as a student can get to a college course at the high school level. I teach this class much like how I taught my Fresh English courses at BYU-Idaho: teaching students how to critically analyze texts, interpret and understand complex ideas, apply methods of research, and write effectively about their opinions. The class will have three major essays, with small writing assignments in-between. The class with be difficult, but worth every minute!
