Methodology


The primary mode of learning is teacher directed lectures and class discussions. Teacher input involves asking questions to students about the symbols, themes, and motifs of the literature under discussion and then responding to questions posed by students. Students are encouraged to share their thoughts through discussion, personal responses, in-class essays, creative assignments, and group activities.

Evaluation


Assessment of student learning is based on in-class quizzes and tests as well as on essays, other class and homework assignments, and class participation. The primary mode of writing is the formal essay, but other informal in-class writing assignments are also assigned. For formal essay assignments during the fall semester, a variety of topics are posed to students about the literature we have discussed, and students then develop their own thesis statements about the topic of her choice. For the spring semester, students develop their own topic to research and then develop this topic over the course of a semester with a thesis, outline, rough draft, and final draft.

Salem Academy Curriculum


AP English Language Eleventh Grade Semester course


Overview


The goals of an AP English Language and Composition course are diverse because

the college composition course is one of the most varied in the curriculum. Although

the college course provides students with opportunities to write about a variety of

subjects from a variety of disciplines and to demonstrate an awareness of audience

and purpose, the overarching objective in most first-year writing courses is to enable

students to write effectively and confidently in their college courses across the

curriculum and in their professional and personal lives. Most composition courses

emphasize the expository, analytical and argumentative writing that forms the basis of

academic and professional communication, as well as the personal and reflective

writing that fosters the development of writing facility in any context. In addition,

most composition courses teach students that the expository, analytical and

argumentative writing they must do in college is based on reading as well as on

personal experience and observation. Composition courses, therefore, teach students

to read primary and secondary sources carefully, to synthesize material from these

texts in their own compositions, and to cite sources using conventions recommended

by professional organizations such as the Modern Language Association (MLA),

the University of Chicago Press (The Chicago Manual of Style), the American

Psychological Association (APA) and the Council of Biology Editors (CBE).
