AP Lang Course Overview

The AP English Language and Composition course aligns to an introductory college-level rhetoric and writing curriculum, which requires students to develop evidence-based analytic and argumentative essays.  Students evaluate, synthesize, and cite research to support their arguments.  Throughout the course, students develop a personal style by making appropriate grammatical choices.  Additionally, students read and analyze the rhetorical elements and their effects in non-fiction texts, including graphic images as forms of text, from many disciplines and historical periods.
