This year-long course will focus on improved writing, vocabulary acquisition, literary analysis, and a final unit on public speaking. The course is intended to prepare each student for the AP Language and Composition test in the spring. A score of 3 and above typically results in the awarding of college credit.
Various novels, plays and nonfiction
In addition, there will be lessons on SAT-level vocabulary and grammar proficiency, and timed in-class worksheet assignments. The latter assignments are intended to sharpen student skills in preparing for the AP exam in the spring. (Taking the test is not a class requirement, though it is recommended.)
