Detailní popis

For a year, students participate in the AP Dinner Party in the AP Literature and Composition course. Menu items include reading, analyzing, writing, rewriting, and discussing creations by the master chefs, renowned authors. Through close reading of the text of these authors, you'll discover the various ways writers use language to provide meaning and pleasure for their readers. The AP Literature and Composition course requires intensive concentration on composition skills (both yours and the author's) in areas of structure, style, and theme. You'll also analyze authors' narrative techniques, like use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism, and tone. The AP Literature and Composition dinner party equips students with recipes for success in college, in a career and the AP exam.

This course is designed to be highly teacher facilitated. Instructors give a great deal of specific and timely feedback. Students have opportunities for oral examinations, discussions, and whiteboards. Teachers conduct synchronous Elluminate sessions, which require critical thinking and analysis.

Student assessment occurs at a variety of levels throughout the lesson and course. Students are assessed via oral assessment and other synchronous sessions. Actual course assessment types include student assessed work, auto-graded, partially auto- graded, and totally instructor graded assignments.
