AP® ENGLISH LITERATURE AND COMPOSITION
Students enrolled in AP® English Literature and Composition have the opportunity to practice a graceful swan dive into what it means to listen as well as what it means to speak with their own authentic voices. They consider fiction, drama, poetry, and short stories from the 1600s to the present, discovering how each work portrays some facet of the universal human condition and analyzing the interplay between diverse individuals, nations, and cultures expressed in those works. They look closely at the interplay between content (the story a writer wants to tell or the moment he or she wants to capture) and form (the way the story or moment is offered to the reader) to enhance understanding of the texts. Students gain the necessary skills for success on the AP® exam in May. Equally important, they amass incontrovertible proof of the global interdependence that characterizes the modern world.

"My teacher cares deeply about her students and makes arrangements so they can succeed. I was worried about taking an online course, and an AP at that, but my teacher has done a great job at making me feel safe and able.”
