Contact Info: Fhhilton@wsfcs.k12.nc.us @mrshiltonrocks (twitter)Overview of Advanced Placement LiteratureAdvanced placement English is a college-level course, which will encompass mostly study in British Literature, writing, and outside reading of novels and plays. Advanced Placement English has three main purposes. The first is to refine your writing abilities with emphasis on maturity of style and thought as a means of expressing yourself effectively and fluently. As you complete high school and face college, immature syntax, superficial analysis, and major grammatical errors should have vanished from your writing. In fact, the mastery of writing will be the foundation of your entire college education. The second purpose is to introduce you to a study of fiction, drama, and poetry in order to increase your understanding of literature through critical analysis and thinking. The final purpose is to prepare you to earn college credit through the AP Examination by mastering the aforementioned skills.AP Literature Classes
