Course Description

Designed to provide a college-level experience, this course will adequately prepare students for the successful completion of the AP English Literature and Composition Exam, which they will take in May. The course will follow the guidelines presented in the AP English Course Description and will satisfy the Curricular Requirements demanded of this course. AP English Literature will: include an intensive study of representative works from American and British Literature, in different genres, from the 16th Century to contemporary times; teach students to write an interpretation of literature that is based on careful observation of textual details; include frequent opportunities for students to write and rewrite formal, extended analyses as well as timed, in-class responses; and provide frequent teacher feedback on students’ writing assignments, before and after the students revise their work.
