AP English Literature and Composition provides students with a course in composition and literary analysis. Through the close study of literary works of all genres and diverse cultures, students develop critical standards for appreciating and evaluating literature. They further sharpen their awareness of language and their understanding of the writer’s craft. The course demands work equivalent to that of an introductory college course. Vocabulary development is implemented through the use of online programs and the study of vocabulary in the context of the literature. A multi-media approach to learning is used throughout the year. Students will be responsible to complete a summer assignment for this course. Completion of a thesis paper is a requirement for graduation.
