AP Literature Prep Course

Michigan State University’s GATE office is offering an AP Literature test prep course for current high school students taught by MSU faculty member, and ISHALL instructor, Dr. James Davis.

Dr. Davis will help students enhance their understanding of literary concepts that appear on the AP Lit test including: imagery, tone, audience, voice, structure, and diction. Additionally, students will learn how to compose analytical and precise essay responses.

Classes will be held face-to-face, with other assignments and activities being completed online using MSU’s D2L interactive course management software. Please direct any questions to the GATE office at gifted@msu.edu or 517-432-2129.
