Course Overview

The AP English Literature and Composition course offers extensive and in-depth reading of, and critical writing about, works of recognized literary merit.  The selections encompass both the classics and critically acclaimed modern, contemporary, and multi-cultural selections.  Outside reading is required.  College level vocabulary study is included, as well as the examination of over one hundred literary concepts.  Research writing, analytical discussions, and projects are requirements of this course.  Advanced Placement Exam preparation includes timed in-class writing assignments and reading exercises gleaned from a variety of sources, including previous AP exams.  Failure to complete the Summer Reading and Assignments results in a transfer to a less arduous English class.
