While the goal of this course is not to teach to the test, AP Literature is designed to prepare students to take the College Board’s Advanced Placement Test in Literature and Composition in May. It is primarily designed to reflect a college level course that requires close reading and careful analysis of a varied selection of literature, as well as the development of advanced writing skills. In addition, students are required to be independent learners and be able to manage long-term projects and assignments.
