AP English Language and Composition  

Calendar

Description:

Per College Board and AP Central: "The AP English Language and Composition course aligns to an introductory college-level rhetoric and writing curriculum, which requires students to develop evidence-based analytic and argumentative essays that proceed through several stages or drafts. Students evaluate, synthesize, and cite research to support their arguments. Throughout the course, students develop a personal style by making appropriate grammatical choices. Additionally, students read and analyze the rhetorical elements and their effects in non-fiction texts, including graphic images as forms of text, from many disciplines and historical periods." Essentially, this is non-fiction heavy English course that focuses on the use of rhetoric and argumentation in literature and writing.
