AP Prep English 9

Description:

AP Prep English 9 is a full year course. This course is designed for students that have demonstrated an aptitude for literary analysis or whom have shown great interest and skill in reading, writing, and communication. During the first semester, students learn about the various forms and purposes of writing, with a focus on introducing writing/communication skills and learning how to analyze a piece of fiction. Throughout the first semester, students are are introduced to the study of short fiction and the novel. All literature read comes from the provided online textbook; however, students may choose to acquire their own copy of George Orwell's "Animal Farm" (also available online). Second semester introduces students to three more aspects of literature: the nonfiction essay, drama, and poetry. Students read and analyze Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet. Students further hone their research and analytical skills during second semester. In the AP track, students must complete an additional project each semester. First semester Pre AP students independently read a novel ("Great Expectations" by Charles Dickens) and write a formal literary analysis essay. Second semester Pre AP students independently read another book ("The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn" by Mark Twain) and give a Thematic Analysis Speech relating to the book. Throughout the year, Pre AP students are introduced and prepared for success on the AP Exam (given during the second semester of their senior year). This course will introduce students to AP studies (as recommended by The College Board / AP Central). Students will be introduced to all aspects of the exam and given introductory strategies for success. Many enrichment and AP Prep opportunities throughout the year distinguish this course from English 9.
