NOTE: Students should not take two AP English classes during the same semester.
This college-level course emphasizes language, themes, structures, and values through intensive study of numerous literary genres and periods. Oral and written compositions, including personal, creative and analytical pieces, require the structuring of ideas and writing style development. Students test their responses to literary works against their peers and literary critics. The course prepares students for the AP Literature and Composition examination. Extensive summer reading and writing are required.
