ENGLISH LITERATURE AND COMPOSITION

The Course: An AP® English course in Literature and Composition should engage students in the careful reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature. Through the close reading of selected texts, students should deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure for their readers. As they read, students should consider a work's structure, style, and themes as well as such smaller-scale elements as the use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone.

Throughout the course, emphasis should be placed on helping students develop stylistic maturity, which, for AP® English, is characterized by the following:

• a wide-ranging vocabulary used with denotative accuracy and connotative resourcefulness; SE: 22, 89–90, 121, 123, 169, 211, 247–248, 250, 262, 269, 283, 287, 373, 380, 386, 473–474, 707, 716, 730, 741, 744, 748, 788–789, 797, 808–813, 836, 860, 883, 907, 932, 940, 949, 951, 953–954, 972–973, 996–1001, 1023, 1028, 1039–1040, 1065, 1090–1091, 1136, 1351–1356, 1498, 1799–1805, 1887–1891, 1893–1894, 2121–2126, 2131–2134, 2134–2146, 2148–2153, 2153–2156, 2156–2160, 2163–2166, 2171–2178

The writing required in an AP® English Literature and Composition course is thus more than a mere adjunct to the study of literature. The writing that students produce in the course reinforces their reading. Since reading and writing stimulate and support one another, they should be taught together in order to underscore both their common and their distinctive elements.
