AP® Literature and Composition EVP (ENGL500e)
1.0 (yearlong course)
American Literature (ENGL300); A grade of an 85% or higher in the subject area course taken the previous year
New for 2020-2021!
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.
If you want to take the AP® exam associated with this course, then be aware that the exam is offered by College Board in early May. Plan accordingly. Go to collegeboard.com to register, find testing locations near you, and browse helpful tips and information.

This live class will include teaching, discussion with classmates from around the world, demonstrations, questions and answers, and other aspects of a live classroom.
