AP English Language and Composition
Prerequisite: Literature II and Writing II (As recommended by AP, students must be able to read college-level texts and write grammatically correct, complete sentences.)
Course Description: The AP English Language and Composition course is a college level course that builds on the skills learned in Writing 1 and Writing 2 courses. Students in this course spend time analyzing the writing of others as well as creating their own written work. Key ideas focus on understanding the rhetorical situation writers are in and the choices they make, creation of clear claims and supporting evidence, organizing arguments in a logical way, and analyzing stylistic rhetorical choices that writers make. As with all AP classes, students have the option to take the course final exam to earn possible college credit.
