Detailní popis

For a year, students participate in the AP Dinner Party in the AP Literature and Composition course. Menu items include reading, analyzing, writing, rewriting, and discussing creations by the master chefs, renowned authors. Through close reading of the text of these authors, you'll discover the various ways writers use language to provide meaning and pleasure for their readers. The AP Literature and Composition course requires intensive concentration on composition skills (both yours and the author's) in areas of structure, style, and theme. You'll also analyze authors' narrative techniques, like use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone. The AP Literature and Composition dinner party equips students with recipes for success in college, in a career and the AP exam.

This course is designed to be highly teacher facilitated. Instructors give a great deal of specific and timely feedback. Students have opportunities for oral examinations, discussions, and whiteboards. Teachers conduct synchronous Elluminate sessions, which require critical thinking and analysis.

Student assessment occurs at a variety of levels throughout the lesson and course. Students are assessed via oral assessment and other synchronous sessions. Actual course assessment types include student assessed work, auto-graded, partially auto- graded, and totally instructor graded assignments.

The AP English Literature and Composition course focuses on reading, analyzing, and writing about imaginative literature (fiction, poetry, drama) from various periods. Students engage in close reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature to deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure. As they read, students consider a work’s structure, style, and themes, as well as its use of figurative language, imagery, and symbolism. Writing assignments include expository, analytical, and argumentative essays that require students to analyze and interpret literary works.

Zkušenosti studentů

I have found the AP course English Literature and Composition both educational and enjoyable. It was challenging in all the right ways, and even though I have fallen behind and had to pay for my mistakes later, I have managed to complete the course and undergo the final exam with no regrets, which I take for my biggest achievement. The course taught me many things from literary theory and practice, ways of analysis, classics from the English literature, and much more, but the most valuable thing I learned is the skill - the skill to analyze a work which I have never seen before, the skill to write a developed essay in such a short time, and the skill to constantly learn from my mistakes. I am glad that I got introduced to so many fascinating works and ideas and I am grateful for every challenge.
Thanks to the course, I also made two new friends, which I believe is just as valuable as any knowledge.

Thank you for your amazing guidance, Mrs. Hornová. You have always been very patient and kind, and your approach and teachings have been the most helpful.
