AP English Literature and Composition
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. (College Board)
In addition, this course may include a college level grammar course which works through the textbook Doing Grammar by Max Morenberg and incorporates those skills into literary analysis and writing.
