AP English Literature & Composition - Semesters 1 and 2

Semester 1 is offered only during the fall term. Semester 2 is offered only during the spring term.


For a year, students participate in the AP Dinner Party in the AP Literature and Composition course. Menu items include reading, analyzing, writing, rewriting, and discussing creations by the master chefs, renowned authors. Through close reading of the text of these authors, you'll discover the various ways writers use language to provide meaning and pleasure for their readers. The AP Literature and Composition course requires intensive concentration on composition skills (both yours and the author's) in areas of structure, style, and theme. You'll also analyze authors' narrative techniques, like use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone. The AP Literature and Composition dinner party equips students with recipes for success in college, in a career and the AP exam.
