A comprehensive syllabus/course plan for AP English Literature & Composition composed in 2007 in accordance with the the new College Board AP Audit requirements.
(This syllabus has been approved and authorized by the College Board for my use; however, if you want to use it as your AP syllabus, you'd still have to submit it to the College Board audit for review for your own program).
Before you purchase this (or any) AP syllabus, be sure you have logged on to AP Central
and read the comprehensive English Literature & Composition course description, as well as the audit information.
This syllabus is twelve detailed pages long, including Course Description, Texts to be used, Grading Policy, Quarter-by-Quarter Course Outline including classwork and homework for each day of the year, and explanation of Major Writing Assignments.
Texts include: Perrineï¿½s Literature: Structure, Sound, and Sense (9th Edition), Elements of Literature: Sixth Course. Holt Rinehart & Winston (2000), and MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers: 6th Edition. MLA (2003).
Major readings include Death of a Salesman, The Awakening, The Importance of Being Earnest, Doctor Faustus, Lord of the Flies, Jane Eyre, Brave New World, and Hamlet. If these texts are not available to you, you could easily substitute an appropriate title in place of one or more.
This course plan is written for block scheduling (88 minute blocks) and is primarily arranged chronologically according to literary history.
