AP Language & Composition
This 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 on non-fiction texts, including graphic images as forms of text, from many disciplines and historical periods. Students are also required to read and analyze several extended pieces of text. Prerequisites and other notes: English 9 (102), English 10 (105). This course is specifically for those students taking the AP Exam.
