English Language / AP English Language


Grades: 11 and 12

Subject Area/Course Credit: English, 1 credit

Prerequisite: English 10. We recommend that students enrolling in AP English Language have a C+ or above in English 10, or teacher recommendation.

English Language prepares students to become skilled readers of a wide variety of nonfiction texts. Students will write analytical and persuasive essays, including those that synthesize arguments from other sources. The goal of the course is to develop mature, discerning readers and writers with a strong awareness of how an author’s rhetorical choices interact with purpose and audience. This course can be taken in Grade 11 or 12. Successful completion of English Language supports post-secondary academic study. This course prepares students to take the AP Language and Composition exam, if they so choose.
