    This semester will be new territory for us (students and teachers). Communication will be of upmost importance at this time, so we all must keep this constant dialog active. I have taught for twenty years and AP Literature/Composition and English IV are two of my favorite content areas and age groups to instruct. Having taught 6th grade Language Arts to 12 grade English provided  a broad understanding of literature genres. 

    Synopsis of British Literature-European Literature from the Middle Ages, Renaissance & Reformation Periods, 17th Century, 18th Century, 19th Century to present day is the pathway of twelth grade literature. A concentration on the writing process with completion of personal, informative, narrative and analysis essays will be accomplished; plus the intergration of grammar skills is required throughout the semester.

    Course Content-British Literature (Short Fiction, Long Fiction, Drama, Poetry and Non-Fiction) Writing (Daily Reflections on Quotes, Images, Videos and/or Current Events/ Autobiography & Resume'/ Literary Analysis Lens/ Argumentative Essay/ Informational Speech Outline) Speaking (Study Motivational Speakers on TED TALKS, British Speeches and Toastmaster Framework leading to delivering an Individual Informative Speech/Presentation) Projects (PowerPoint, GoogleSlides, Presentation, Group Demonstrations & Group Discussions) Grammar (Usage, Mechanics and Edit Skills)

    AP Literature and Composition-This course focuses on reading, analyzing, and writing about imaginative literature from various periods and aligns to an introductory college-level literature and writing curriculum. 1. Students engage in close reading and critical analysis of literature to deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure. 2. As they read, students consider a work's structure, style, and themes, as well as its use of figurative language, imagery and symbolism. 3. Writing assignments include expository, analytical, and argumentative essays that require students to analyze and interpret literary works.
