AP English Language and Composition
Learn about the elements of argument and composition as you develop your critical-reading and writing skills. You’ll read and analyze nonfiction works from various periods and write essays with different aims: for example, to explain an idea, argue a point, or persuade your reader of something. The course content is organized into nine units of study that provide one possible sequence for the course. The units define the skills you’ll work on as the course progresses, but your teacher can choose the content and themes that you’ll focus on in each unit.
