Course: AP Literature and Composition
Instructor: Jaimie Crawford
Description: This course will include a study of the personal essay and short story, a survey of drama, and analysis and discussion of poetry. The goal of this class will be to prepare the students to appreciate and articulate the subtleties and complexities of language through close readings of the English canon. Likely major works to be included are: Oedipus, Hamlet, Othello, Death of a Salesman, Importance of Being Earnest, Pride and Prejudice,and The Great Gatsby, among others. Students will also be asked to choose one modern novel of literary merit to read and present. Members of this class should be prepared to read literature, write often, and engage in intellectual exploration and debate. Although the focus of this class will be literature, we will also be doing exercises specifically intended to prepare for the AP exam. We will use released exams for practice in both multiple choice and essay writing as well as studying literary and rhetorical strategies of the authors we read.
