AP English Language and Composition


By: Kamil Berríos


The AP English Language and Composition course provides students with the opportunity to read texts from various eras and in different genres, analyzing the big ideas of rhetorical situation. Not only students analyze, debate, and discuss arguments, but also write synthesis, argumentative, and creative essays.

Recently, we read in class “Where I Lived, and What I Live for,” which is the second chapter from Walden by Henry David Thoreau. In representation of America Transcendentalism, Thoreau (1854) believed, “Every man is asked to make his life, even in its details, worthy of the contemplation of his most elevated and critical hour.” Let that sink in for a while and try to elevate our consciousness.


We used the Toulmin Model of Argument to “reveal both the strengths and the limits of the argument.”


Therefore, the class “went to the woods to live deliberately” as in Thoreau’s Walden. We definitely chose well, the futbol field.
