Welcome to Mrs. Brown's Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition Class.
This course involves an intensive study of representative literary works from various genres and time periods (sixteenth through twentieth centuries). As students focus on literary analysis, they will be preparing to take the Advanced Placement test for this course in May.
Students will read actively, learn how to make careful observations of textual detail, establish connections among their observations, and draw from those connections a series of inferences leading to an interpretive conclusion about the work’s meaning and value.
Students will develop and organize ideas in a clear, coherent, and persuasive language. In addition, students will develop stylistic maturity in their writing.
Writing assignments will focus on critical analysis of literature and will include expository, analytical, and argumentative essays.
