Course Description: 

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 work's 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.

Course Structure:

The course is designed to help students become skilled readers and writers through engagement with the following course requirements: It will be conducted over a series of seven classes.

Reading complex imaginative literature (fiction, drama, and poetry) appropriate for college-level study

Writing an interpretation of a piece of literature that  is based on a careful observation of textual details, considering the work's structure, style, and themes; the social and historical values it reflects and embodies; and such elements as the use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone

Composing in several forms (e.g. narrative, expository, analytical, and argumentative essays) based on students’ analyses of literary texts

Writing that proceeds through several stages or drafts, with revision aided by teacher and peers
