AP Language and Composition Test Prep Workshop

Course Description:

AP Language and Composition is an English language course created by the College Board as part of the Advanced Placement (AP) curriculum. AP Language and Composition is typically the first AP English course taken by high school students on the Advanced Placement track. The course is designed to help students increase reading proficiency for prose written in a variety of rhetorical contexts and increase writing ability across a variety of essay types.

In this workshop, students will follow a streamlined curriculum for AP Language and Composition. Through weekly meetings, students will learn and practice the three types of essays covered in the course: synthesis essays, rhetorical analysis essays, and argument essays.

Comprehension and Creation of Logical Argument in English Essays

Course Description:

In this class, students will first enhance their ability to analyze an author’s argument by learning basic text structures and studying passages from previous SAT and ACT papers. Students will then go on to put their learning into practice, constructing their own arguments in writing. The class will also cover key elements of literature essays such as theme, thematic statement, thesis statement, topic sentences, analysis, synthesis, and conclusions.

The class will be useful preparation for the SAT, ACT, and for AP English Language and Composition. It will also address common difficulties with English literature essays. Selected texts and passages will be short, allowing students more time to refine their skills. The class is designed for high school students, and it is intended to be both instructive and enjoyable.
