Course Overview

English III AP is a chronological study of American literature from the earliest surviving Native American literature to the contemporary period.  It interweaves history and literature to enhance students' understanding of literary works, their authors, and the contributions of our multicultural society.  Students will be expected to complete both expressive and argumentative essays, deliver a persuasive speech, and complete a junior research paper and presentation.  Advanced technology will be incorporated for optimum multimedia learning and a twenty-first century skill base.  The class is year-long, and also incorporates college text nonfiction readings and graphics/media.  The students are required to take an AP Exam in May.
