AP® Literature and Composition may be taught at the high school or college-level. The course covers the breadth of the written experience from ancient texts to modern literature. The course is divided into three parts: drama, the novel and poetry. Each part has a number of units that require students to delve into a work in depth. Lessons are designed to highlight a different aspect of the writer's craft such as tone, symbolism, diction and plot construction. Lessons have accompanying homework assignments, writing exercises, term paper options, lecture notes, take home and in-class tests, examination rubrics, and in many cases model responses. Each unit has two model AP® type exam questions and the totality of the course content should well prepare students for the AP® exam.
