York Community High School

AP Language & Composition

Grade 11 /  Full Year High Weighted Course - 2.0 credits

Prerequisite: Students must have earned credit for English 10 or 10 Honors


Advanced Placement Language and Composition exposes students to the type of scholarly environment and rigor that is comparable to an introductory college course, while combining the study and analysis of both fiction and nonfiction with an emphasis on composition, argumentation, and critical thinking.  Additionally, this course explores the use of rhetorical techniques and how they inform the purpose of the writer to create meaning for his or her intended audience.  Collaborative inquiry guides not only exploration into the inquiry questions but the study of the AP exam itself, which students are strongly encouraged to sit for in the spring.
