English (EN) Courses for School GPA STARPREP® EN PROGRAMSAP® English Literature and Composition

This course immerses students in close reading and analysis of challenging literary works from a range of genres -- novels, short stories, poems, plays, and nonfiction. Composed of challenging reading and writing assignments, the course focuses on intensive reading and discussion of the literature. Students will read at a fast pace and will be required to form independent opinions about the offered materials. Thoughtful analysis of the readings and multi-step writing assignments will be required. The writing component centers on the focused interpretation of high-level texts, with assignments ranging from Discussion Board posts to full, five-paragraph essays. Through course discussions, students will have consistent interaction with the teacher and peers. During weekly live sessions (where applicable), students have the opportunity to engage in one-on-one discussion with the teacher about course concepts and gain additional feedback on coursework. AP Literature and Composition is a year-long course. For most students, the course concludes with the College Board AP English Literature and Composition exam in early May. RECOMMENDED PREREQUISITE: Strong grades in English 9, English 10, and English 11, and a willingness to tackle challenging works and to become an independent learner.
