AP English Literature and Composition (Period 2)
As described by the College Board, this course is designed to engage students in the careful reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature. Students will deepen their understanding of how authors use language by analyzing a work’s structure, style, and themes as well as elements such as figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone. In this course, we will study representative works from various genres and periods, concentrating on works of recognized literary merit. We will write. We will write a great deal. Writing assignments will focus on the critical analysis of literature, though the occasional creative writing assignment will help students experience how literature is written, thus making them more able readers. Discussion will be an essential element of this course as we challenge one another to achieve greater depths of understanding. This will be a safe place to explore ideas and share our mental wanderings and wonderings.
