Students choosing AP Literature and Composition should be interested in “studying literature of various periods and genres [while] … students choosing AP Language and Composition should be interested in studying and writing various kinds of analytic or persuasive essays on nonliterary topics.” 

Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition:

Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition course is a rigorous, college-level course. The purpose of the course, as described by the College Board, is to “engage students in the careful reading and critical analysis of imaginative literature.” This class requires close reading of 8-10 selected novels and dramas (in addition to many short stories and poems) whereby students can deepen their understanding of the ways writers use language to provide both meaning and pleasure for their readers. In learning to analyze and interpret literature, students must learn to make careful observations of textual detail, establish connections among their observations, and draw from those connections a series of inferences leading to an interpretive conclusion about a piece of writing’s meaning and value. In addition to considering a work's literary artistry, students will consider the social and historical values it reflects and embodies. As prescribed by the College Board, writing also will be an integral part of the class and assignments will focus on the “critical analysis of literature and [will] …increase students’ ability to explain clearly, cogently, even elegantly, what they understand about literary works and why they interpret them as they do.” Students will write to understand, to explain, and to evaluate. (NCAA)

NOTES:
