The depth, rigor and pacing of this class are more demanding than English 10. You will use Advanced Placement (AP) strategies for composition and literary analysis with in-depth analysis and synthesis of literary selections to improve your research and argumentation skills. You will use these skills to write a compare and contrast paper and a research paper using controlled sources. You will study and practice public speaking, listening, grammar usage and media skills. Take this class if you plan to take AP Language and Composition (11th grade) and AP Literature and Composition (12th grade).
