Following the College Board’s suggested curriculum designed to parallel college-level English courses, AP English Language and Composition courses expose students to prose written in a variety of periods, audience, and the subject at hand, and through them, students learn to develop stylistic flexibility as they write compositions covering a variety of subjects that are intended for various purposes.
Before taking AP English Language & Composition, all students should complete two or three years of secondary English Language Arts designed for college-bound students, courses in which they study the writing process of brainstorming, pre-writing, drafting, editing, and revision. Students must have a strong base in critical reading, particularly reading for information. Students must also grasp the concepts of grammar, demonstrating that understanding in their writing. A level of and use of a high-level vocabulary will be pertinent to their success in the course. Students will need an understanding of the art of rhetoric, the techniques authors use to portray their position.
