Provisional Curriculum for A.P. English Language Summer Institute, very flexible:
Course Objectives: the main objective is to answer and explore the questions and topics that the participants raise about an A.P.English Language course. For those teachers new to this course, the objective will be to suggest and clarify a working curriculum for A.P.English Language at the 11th or 12th grade levels, and to help teachers prepare their students for the A.P. examination. A few textbooks and College Board material will be used to provide help. All class activities try to support these learning objectives.
If possible, participants should bring to class ONE xeroxed or printed example of a prose passage (non-fiction only and a 200-400 word maximum) suitable for essay or multiple choice questions or for relevant reading in a classroom.
