View Events/Assignments for
Advanced Placement (AP) English Language and Composition is a college level course that deals in recognizing, analyzing, and expressing ideas. Students will spend the year considering important ideas advanced throughout history as they test their own ideas against those of others. Due to the challenging nature of Advanced Placement coursework, this course demands each student’s best effort, all the time.
Specifically, AP English Language is intended to engage students in becoming skilled readers of prose from various periods, disciplines, and rhetorical contexts, and in becoming skilled writers who compose for a variety of purposes. It brings into focus the interactions among a writer’s purposes, audience expectations, and subjects, as it promotes examination of the conventions and resources of language that contribute to effective writing.
