AP Language and Compostion

This course in Advanced Placement Language and Composition provides students with an opportunity to pursue college-level reading and writing. Emphasis is placed on non-fiction texts that are both current and archaic. These texts serve as models for student writings of Argumentative, Analytical, and Informational essays. Students will also read challenging essays to focus on writer’s rhetoric and purpose. Upper level vocabulary and advanced sentence structures will be taught as ways to elevate student reading and writing. 3-4 novels are part of the course and Hamlet will also be taught. All facets of the program prepare the student for Advanced Placement Examination in English Language administered in May.
