AP Language is a challenging and demanding course, but the rewards are exponential.  First, students receive college English credit if they "pass" the AP test (check with college of your choice to see what a "passing" score is).  Finally, and most importantly, there is no better preparation for success in college.   Students in AP Language will become better readers and writers of non-fiction, preparing them for the challenging work ahead of them. This the BEST reason to take AP Language. 

The following resources are used in AP Language from year to year. Copies will also be handed out in class.
