YOU WILL NEED TO KNOW THE FOLLOWING WRITING TERMS...

    We will continue to  focus on these writing elements as we prepare for the writing test. Remember you must write on your own during the test, I cannot help you. Therefore, you must prepare youself by paying attention in class and working hard to make sure that you will do your best. Our target scores for the writing test are between 250-310, with scores in the 300 range being perfect. I know I will have good scores from my students.
