The purpose of this course is to prepare students as readers and writers of the English language in disciplines outside of the traditional classical literature taught in most English classes. Not only may the students who are successful in the AP Language course and subsequent exam be able to earn college credit and bypass Freshman Composition in college, but those students will be able to analyze and write about a variety of texts across high school and college curricula.
