Prerequisite: Summer work is required.

This rigorous course is for students interested in college-level curriculum and parallels English Composition courses taught at many universities. Students will engage in intensive reading of prose (primarily American) in order to enhance their own writing skills and to examine how writers use language to effectively persuade, educate, and even entertain. This course includes extensive writing in multiple genres with particular emphasis on expository, analytical, and argumentative writing. Successful completion enables students to take the AP English Language Exam for possible college credit.
