Course Description:
Grade 10 Pre-Advanced Placement English is a world literature survey course designed to prepare
students for both AP Language and Composition in grade eleven and AP Literature in grade twelve.
From ancient texts to 21st century novels, a wide variety of works will be used to study universal
literary elements, with particular emphasis on the hero as archetype. We will examine the influence
that audience, theme, tone, rhetoric, and author’s purpose each exert on the meaning of a work of
literature. Students will learn vocabulary and composition skills associated with close textual analysis
of poetry, fiction, and non-fiction literature. Writing will be a major component of this course.
Assuming most students already have a fair mastery of grammar and sentence structure, we will
focus on writing the essay. Students will practice research methodology by completing a yearlong
poetry research project.

used by teachers of that grade level. All novels may be found in the ASFM bookroom, but some novels are in the literature textbook
used in the course as indicated by the letters “LT” in parentheses after the novel. All novels will be provided to students except for most
novels in the Pre-Advanced Placement and Advanced Placement courses where students may be asked to purchase the novels. All
required novels must be listed on the course syllabus, but literature circle novels do not need to be listed. The department head is
responsible for providing updated novel information to the Director of Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment (DCIA) at the end of
each school year.
