Welcome to the AP Language Course homepage.  Please know that daily assignments are linked on Jupiter Grades and that’s your best resource for day-to-day course info (all weekly sheets are linked there).

Here you can find the summer assignment and reading list, as well as the course overview.  Please email your teacher over the summer if you have any questions (rmurphy@wocsd.org or rfollansbee@wocsd.org).

About the class:

This class runs like a college seminar, with a diverse array of weekly readings you are expected to be prepared to discuss in class and analyze in writing.  Typically you can expect 20-40 minutes of reading per night and a 1-3 page essay each week (averages only). You will be challenged to understand the wide array of choices writers make to create an effective text, and you will work to apply this understanding when making choices in your own writing.  


Students will have frequent one-on-one writing conferences, but please reach out via email if you have questions or concerns about the class.  rfollansbee@wocsd.org

In this course, and throughout the school, our mission is to empower all students through individualized instruction to become literate critical thinkers and problem solvers committed to civic engagement.
