Pre-AP English Literature I is an accelerated literature course with a strong emphasis on close readings of texts, analytical writing, and language skills. It was designed by the College Board to help students prepare to take AP English courses, as well as develop the communication skills needed in the workplace. If you or your child are having a hard time in this class, Varsity Tutors can refer you to a Pre-AP English Literature tutor who can help you pursue your academic goals.
Here are some of the skills that may be reinforced during Pre-AP English Literature tutoring sessions:
- Reading Poetry, Drama, Novels, Short Stories, Essays, and Non-Fiction Through an Analytical Lens
- Noticing the Subtle Word Choices that Help Make an Author's Point
- Practicing Critical Thinking and Writing Skills
- Identifying and Using Literary Devices and Rhetorical Techniques
- Grammar and the Mechanics of the English Language
The first step in literary analysis is knowing what you are looking for. If you need help remembering the definitions of words such as "allegory," "syllogism," and "structure mirrors content," your Pre-AP English Literature tutor may make you flashcards with examples so that it's easier to study. Furthermore, your tutor may show you how to incorporate these techniques into your own writing to make it more effective.
