AP English Language and Composition

Description

AP English Language and Composition enables students to become skilled readers of complex texts written in a variety of periods, disciplines, and rhetorical contexts, and to become skilled writers who compose prose for a variety of purposes in order to communicate effectively with mature readers. The course allows students to write in narrative, exploratory, expository, and argumentative forms and on many different subjects ranging from personal experience to literary analysis. English Language and Composition prepares students for the writing that forms the basis of academic and professional communication as well as the personal and reflective writing that fosters the development of writing facility in any context. The course demands work equivalent to that of an introductory college course. A multi-media approach to learning is used throughout the year. Students study an advanced vocabulary curriculum designed for post-secondary students. Students will be responsible to complete a summer assignment for this course
