AP Prep American Literature


AP Prep American Literature is a year-long course. The class provides a survey of American literature. We will use Holt-McDougal American Literature online textbook as our main source of material. Second semester students will study an American novel in depth, and choose a nonfiction book to discuss in an ongoing literature circle. The course is designed chronologically and moves from literature of the early settlers to contemporary American literature. Students will read both fiction and non-fiction pieces and experiment with different types of writing, including literary analysis, persuasive writing and research-based writing. There are also visual presentation projects incorporated into the class to teach students how to create an effective presentation and allow for some creativity. The class is designed to develop writing and analytical skills in preparation for AP English 12 and college level English courses.
