Prerequisite:  An average of B or better in Honors Survey of British Literature and Rhetoric or special permission.

The Advanced Placement (AP) English Language and Composition course, taken in the junior year, is designed to prepare students to take the College Board AP English Language and Composition Exam in the spring. The course is equivalent to a college freshman-level English composition course. The class refines students' analytical reading and writing skills and focuses on close reading and analysis of novels, plays, and prose. Research skills are honed, and use of the MLA handbook is emphasized.  Vocabulary study comes from the context of the literature and SAT vocabulary preparation. AP English Language students read, discuss, and write about The Scarlet Letter, Nathanial Hawthorne; Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Mark Twain;The Great Gatsby, F. Scott Fitzgerald; Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, Edward Albee; and The Catcher in the Rye, J. D. Salinger. One Hundred Great Essays published by Penguin Academics is used for non-fiction prose study.  The Language of Composition: Reading, Writing, and Rhetoric published by Bedford/St. Martin's and designed specifically to prepare students for the AP English Language exam is used extensively.
