    AP Literature and Composition

    Advanced Placement Literature and Composition is an extensive preparation course in which students will analyze prose and poetic texts from the point of view of the writer as well as of the reader to determine how the literature affects its readers and in what ways. In addition, students will examine the style and structure of a text, including a writer's diction, imagery, use of detail, language and syntax and attempt to determine the effect of a particular style and structure on the overall meaning of the work. Vocabulary study is important. Writing well about literature is a key component of the class. Students will keep a writing log over the course of the year to document their improvement and to engage themselves in thinking about their writing. The anticipated result of this course is that students will be prepared for the Advanced Placement examination in English Literature and Composition, as well as for college and the workplace.
