Extended Year 2024 – 2025

Monday, August 26, 2024 – Friday, May 30, 2025


Fixed-Pace Course


Completion of Grade 10



This course is the equivalent of an introductory college-level Literature and Composition course. Students will read and critically assess major works of English-language imaginative literature — including fiction, poetry, and drama — from a diverse range of periods and styles. Topics covered will include style, structure, themes, imagery, figurative language, and symbolism. Students will develop their essay-writing skills, with attention to expository, analytical, and argumentative forms. On successful completion of this course, students will be prepared to sit the AP English Literature and Composition AP exam.

Completion of this course requires regular access to a laptop or desktop computer with working microphone and webcam, as well as a reliable internet connection.

This Fixed-Paced course incorporates a blend of synchronous and asynchronous elements. Students and teacher meet live via zoom on a regular weekly schedule. In addition, students complete coursework including guided readings, interactive videos, text and video-based discussion threads, problem sets, individual and collaborative projects, and so on. While these activities are time-flexible, teachers sequence them with weekly deadlines to help students keep on track and encourage and support the development of productive time management skills.
