Through the close reading of selected texts, students will deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure for their readers. As they read, students should consider a work’s structure, style, and themes as well as such smaller-scale elements as the use of figurative language, imagery, symbolism and tone. Students will initiate and participate effectively in a range of collaborative discussions and develop fundamental communication skills in order to effectively share reasoning and varied perspectives during oral presentations. This course will prepare students for the AP English examinations. 10LA - LA Elective12th;#1 yearLanguage ArtsN/ANohttp://contenthub.bvsd.org/curriculum/1920%20Course%20Catalog/AP%20Literature%20and%20Composition%20wt.docx
