Senior Advanced Placement Literature and Composition is a college-level course in literature and composition, designed to engage students in the careful reading and critical analysis of works of literary merit. Through the close reading of selected texts, students appreciate the depth and dimension of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure for their readers. Readings will be selected from the short fiction, poetry, and drama offered by the textbook, supplemented by novels which must be obtained by the students. As they read, students consider a work’s structure, style, and themes as well as rhetorical elements such as figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone. Writing is an integral part of the Senior AP English course and exam. Writing assignments focus on the critical analysis of literature and include expository, analytical, and argumentative essays. Although critical analysis makes up the bulk of student writing for the course, creative projects may be included. The goal of writing assignments is to increase students’ ability to explain clearly, cogently, even elegantly, what they understand about literary works and why they interpret them as they do. This course is aligned with district and national common core standards and supports the school wide efforts in increasing student achievement.
