The Advanced Placement course in English Literature and Composition is a college-level study of literature and writing. Students learn how to use the modes of discourse and to recognize assumptions underlying various rhetorical strategies. Through reading, discussion, writing, and listening, students engage literary texts through the resources of language, including literary devices. This course prepares students to take the national Advanced Placement exam which many colleges use to award college credits.
