AP Lit Syllabus: here.
Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition is designed to teach critical reading and writing following the requirements described in the AP English Course Description Handbook. We will read from a wide variety of sources and genres and consider the techniques writers use (diction, syntax, tone, figurative language, and mechanics) to achieve their rhetorical goals.
This course is also writing intensive. We will write for a variety of reasons under a variety of settings. We will right to understand, explain and evaluate the literature we read. Many of our writings will be timed, in-class responses, while others will be formal papers put through a series of evaluations, revisions, and drafts. We will always consider your effectiveness as a writer and analyze our own use of techniques such as word choice, sentence structure and organization.
