AP Literature & Composition

Advanced Placement Literature and Composition is designed to enable advanced students to gain freshman college mastery of writing and literature. Units on nonfiction, drama, fiction and poetry review the elements and terms of each genre and require students to demonstrate their analytical and expository skills in writing and discussion. Students practice for the AP Literature and Composition exam, assume major responsibility for small group presentations and conduct extensive research. Continuous outside reading is assigned. Upon completion of the course, students are expected to take the AP Exam in Composition and Literature offered by the CEEB.
