Summer Assignment: AP Language and Composition

Summer Assignment:  1. Read and annotate The Crucible by Arthur Miller. 2. Read and annotate chapters 1-5 and 9-12 of Sin and Syntax: How to Create Wicked Good Prose by Constance Hale.

 

The Crucible serves as an access point to fallacies and analytical skills; whereas, Sin and Syntax serves as a guide to polish your writing skills. Both texts are instrumental to a strong start of the school year in AP Language and Composition.

Trident and Ebbtide

Students enrolled in Trident work on Corona del Mar High School's monthly magazine. All the articles in the 32-page publication are written and edited by the students; additionally, the students design each page using the latest desktop publishing software. Funding for the printing of the magazine is derived from subscriptions and advertising sales. If you would like a subscription or advertise in the magazine, then contact me at cdmtridentmagazine@gmail.com. Another component of the class is Trident Online. Students write weekly articles about school events such as sports, activities and clubs. You may visit the site at www.tridentonline.net. We appreciate any suggestions and responses to the articles found in both mediums.

Ebbtide students design Corona del Mar High School's yearbook. An annual publication, Ebbtide runs on a budget close to $140,000 to print a 380-plus page book that documents the events of the school year. Staff members begin work on the publication in the Spring of the previous school year, continue working with the theme at yearbook camp during the summer, and dedicate numerous hours throughout the school year.

Students are responsible for taking photographs, writing copy, captions and headlines, designing layouts, and selling advertisements.

Distribution of the book is in June.

If you would like to purchase a yearbook or advertise in the book, please contact me at 949-515-6023.
