AP Language is open to all juniors at Helena High School, preparing students for the AP Language and Composition exam, which offers college credit for passing students.
The course will be focused on the study of argumentation, rhetoric, and analysis. We’ll spend a great deal of our time analyzing and evaluating interesting non-ﬁction, though the course will also cover the occasional ﬁction piece. We will certainly readThe Grapes of Wrath and The Great Gatsby. This will be a very different experience from your normal English class.
