The AP English Literature and Composition course aligns to an introductory college-level literary analysis course. The course engages students in the close reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature to deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure. As they read, students consider a works structure, style, and themes, as well as its use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone. Writing assignments include expository, analytical, and argumentative essays that require students to analyze and interpret literary works.
Ap English is designed for the student who have demonstrated his or her ability to the demands his college preparatory courses and who wishes to advance his or her English skills to the collegiate level while still in high school. The demands of this course are rigorous, as extensive reading and expository writing are required. Successful completion of the optional AP placement tests may result in college English credit(s) for the student.
