Class Description

AP English Literature & Composition

Elective: for Grades 10-12

The AP English Literature and Composition is a one-year course designed to build on students’ knowledge from previous English Honors courses while enhancing their analytical, interpretive, and presentation skills using novels, plays, poems, and short stories from different literary eras. Fundamental principles that students focus on throughout the entire year include understanding the use of language in poetry, short stories, dramas, novels and memoirs; learning the importance of structure, style, and theme in the development of a work; integrating knowledge of literary terms and elements within a given work; and continued use of proper APA research conventions . The course also encourages the development of oral skills. Along with classroom discussions, each student therefore delivers formal and informal timed presentations throughout the year. The organization of this course follows the requirements and guidelines of the College Board’s AP English Course Description and is intended to prepare senior and junior level students for the AP English Literature and Composition Exam administered in May.
