Course Description
  • In order to give students who wish to take the
    IB or AP tests a wider reading background, this
    class will focus on European writers and authors
    from other parts of the world. The works selected
    will be studied in depth and will include
    fiction, drama, essay and poetry. Composition
    will also be an integral part of the course. This
    is a rigorous course designed to prepare students
    for the IB/AP examinations in this subject area.

    reading list, which is available from the

Policies to highlight
  • Students are required to act in a responsible and
    ethical manner throughout their participation in
    the AP/IB programs. In particular candidates must
    avoid any form of malpractice. The IBO define
    malpractice as behavior that results in, or may
    result in, the student or any other student
    gaining an unfair advantage in one or more
    assessment components. Students found to have
    engaged in academic dishonesty may be subject to
    disciplinary as well as academic penalties.
  • The final exam will count for 20 of the final
    semester grade. Every student will take the final
    exam as I am preparing them for college, and
    exemption status will be determined after the
    exam is completed. If exempt from the final exam
    students will be able to choose whether or not to
    count it into their grade. An exempt grade will
    not lower as a result of the final exam.
  • A PRACTICE SESSION FOR THE AP AND IB TEST TAKERS
    ONLY WILL BE SCHEDULED IN THE SPRING. STUDENTS
    ATTENDING THE ENTIRE SESSION AND COMPLETING THE
    ENTIRE EXAM CAN RECEIVE FINAL EXAM EXEMPTION AND
    UP TO 45 ADDED TO THEIR SEMESTER GRADE.

Assessment Standards
  • Essays will be assessed using the AP Literature
    rubric
  • Major projects will be evaluated using a
    teacher-created, content specific rubric
