AP English Literature & Composition

About AP Literature

  • This Advanced Placement English course in Literature and Composition is for accelerated students who are preparing to take the AP Literature and Composition examination for college. This AP English course focuses on intensive reading of world literature. Novels, plays, essays, short stories, and poems will be studied closely and will provide the focus for most of the class lectures, discussions, formal and informal writing assignments, and independent study projects. Students must register for both A and B classes. We recommend students take AP Language and Composition before taking AP Literature and Composition. Students must obtain written permission from the AP Instructor before dropping an AP course.
