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.
