Writing, like any skill, must be worked on and developed. For many of you it will be one of the more frustrating aspects of the course. The AP exam requires that you have advanced writing skills and that you successfully write 2 essays. Moreover, writing well and being able to effectively argue a position is a necessary skill that spans all disciplines. Therefore, while you may struggle to master this in the beginning of the year, remain vigilant and remember how much you will use this in your life.
