This AP English course will provoke students to develop their understanding of the English language.  Designed to help students prepare for the AP English exam, this course will help students to develop their logical thinking skills as they relate to communication via the written word.  Homeschoolers will learn how to improve upon their written work through proofreading and content analysis.  At the end of the year, we will teach homeschoolers valuable test-taking skills that will improve their ability to perform well on standardized tests.  The course is capped with an AP English practice test.
