AP English Literature and Composition
The AP English Literature and Composition course aligns to an introductory college-level literary analysis course that focuses on furthering students’ reading and writing skills. As they read poetry, short stories, drama, and novels, students consider a work’s structure, style and themes, as well as its use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism and tone. Students will write a variety of expository and analytical assignments that interpret literary works. This course offers students opportunities to actively engage with the texts and topics they study and present both formally and informally to the class. Students may opt to take the AP Literature Exam in May and, upon earning a passing score, may receive college credit for the course.
