Of course it would be better for humanity if college in the United States actually required a semblance of adult writing competency. But I have tried everything. I held a workshop dedicated to avoiding vague introductions (&ldquo The idea and concept of the duality of sin and righteousness has been at the forefront of our understanding of important concepts since the beginning of time.&rdquo ) The result was papers that started with two incoherent sentences that had nothing to do with each other. I tried removing the introduction and conclusion altogether, and asking for a three-paragraph miniessay with a specific argument what I got read like One Direction fan fiction.
Are you a high school AP English Student? The AP English essay is part of the final exam to determine if you get your Advanced Placement (AP) English credit, freeing you from one or two composition classes in college. To formulate a top-level AP English essay, some preparation is required in addition to your AP English class. Remember that you will be working under a time constraint of 7 hours for 8 essays (the College Board calls them "free response"). 
I&rsquo ve graded drafts and assigned rewrites, and that helps the good students get better, but the bad students, the ones I&rsquo m trying to help , just fail to turn in any drafts at all. Meanwhile, I come up for air and realize that with all this extra grading, I&rsquo m making 75 cents an hour.

Essays are common assignments for English courses in high school and in college. While writing an essay for an English class may seem overwhelming, it does not have to be. If you give yourself plenty of time to plan and develop your essay, then you will not have to stress about it.
Most students enter college barely able to string three sentences together and they leave it that way, too. With protracted effort and a rhapsodically engaged instructor, some may learn to craft a clunky but competent essay somewhere along the way. But who cares? My fellow humanists insist valiantly that (among other more elevated reasons) writing humanities papers leads to the crafting of sharp argumentative skills, and thus a lifetime of success in a number of fields in which we have no relevant experience. But my friends who actually work in such fields assure me that most of their colleagues are borderline-illiterate. After all, Mark Zuckerberg&rsquo s pre-Facebook Friendster profile bragged &ldquo i don&rsquo t read&rdquo ( sic ), and look at him.
