In the meantime, check out the advice below from this year's graduating AP Literature students! I asked them if there was anything they'd want to share with you all, and they said...
"Dear incoming AP Lit students: Don't complain about the work load because it is manageable and given to you for a reason. If you are thoughtful and eager to learn, you will do well in the class. Enjoy reading the books and don't rely on websites like Shmoop or Sparknotes to summarize the novels for you, but use them as a guide for understanding theme and style."
"AP Literature is one of the most rewarding courses at Grant. As seniors, your goal is to prepare for college and that is exactly what this class offers. You read renowned works, write literary analysis papers, analyze important quotes, learn about many literary devices, review grammar/MLA rules, and so much more. Once AP Exam time nears, you feel ready for the test. But most importantly, as a senior, I feel ready to tackle the challenging courses in college. My advice is just keep up with the work and the timing, and you'll realize that everything is doable. P.S. Mrs.Pariser is super helpful because she actually reads your work and provides useful feedback." ;D
"I would want to inform them about all the benefits they will receive just by taking this class. It 100% will prepare them for any kind of exam and will teach them so many things they hadn't yet known, which will help them improve their writing skills and look good in college because they will be so prepared."
"BE ready! This class comes with work so bring your A game and don't miss assignments because they will drag you back. Manage your time well I know by experience if you have a busy schedule doing work or extra curricular activity then you need to find some space for AP Lit it will take up some of your time. The class is hard but in a way and worth taking you meet interesting people, nice teachers, and overall just a different experience than the usual English class. It's a class that will change your thoughts on Literature in a positive way."
"I would tell them to be prepared for the large amounts of homework but that the same time to their best because this class is one of the few on campus that actually prepares you for what it is to come in college."
"Do not procrastinate on your work no matter what. Honestly, yes you can come in and do everything last minute in a rush, but the quality of work drops drastically. It gives you much more peace of mind to just do everything as it's assigned. There is a lot of work assigned and too much to be constantly procrastinating."
"Make sure you all do your work in advance and never fall behind. Otherwise I will literally become very very difficult to catch up."
