AP® Literature and Composition EVP


AP® Literature is designed to strengthen the student’s ability to read and interpret the various genres and motifs in literature. This class will help prepare the student to take the AP® exam in Literature at the end of the school year, but the class will not “teach to the test.” Students will write multiple essays utilizing excellent analysis, structure, and phrasing. Literature readings will be mainly from British Literature, with selections from World Literature added. This class covers many of the literary pieces that the British Literature class covers, but it does so at a higher level, as it covers the worldviews of each major literary movement.

Special Notes:

If you are planning to take the AP® exam associated with this course, then be aware that beginning in Fall 2019 the College Board requires that all students register in October of each school year to take the exam which is held in early May. You must make your decision early. There are penalties associated with late registration and with registering and then deciding not to take the exam at a later date. Please plan accordingly. For more information or if you have more questions, please visit  https://apcentral.collegeboard.org . Once on the site, search Home-Schooled Students to find information on locating testing locations near you.

** This course is NOT eligible for dual credit through CCU. If you wish to seek dual credit for this course, instead of taking the AP exam, you must enroll in the DC or dual credit version of this course. The dual credit version of this course is not currently offered as an EVP course.

As an online school, NorthStar Academy is not a testing center. We are a certified AP course provider. Students must locate a face to face school in their local area that will allow them to sit the exam with their students.
