Course Description:

This class is designed for students with reservations about taking the AP English Literature class and for those who are looking to get ahead. Reading challenging texts and writing complex essays are requirements of the AP course, and this class will provide a framework for doing both tasks effectively.  Topics this course covers include argumentative writing, literary analysis, and poetry interpretation. We also integrate the study of grammar, annotation, and quotation choice into our study.
