AP Literature and Composition
AP Literature and Composition follows the curricular requirements described by the College Board as found in the AP English Literature and Composition Course Description as follows: Students build skills essential for college-level reading and writing. They engage in close reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature from different time periods, genres, and cultures. The essential practice of reading and analyzing provocative and challenging material through a variety of texts (traditional, digital, film, etc.) empowers students to offer interpretations of these works through verbal discussion, oral presentations, timed-writing assessments, and formal essays. The practices of close reading and analytical writing serve both as preparation for the AP English Literature and Composition test and for ultimate success in college. Students work collaboratively to explore numerous reading and writing strategies to enhance their skills in these areas.
*Students in this course take the corresponding Advanced Placement Exam.
