SYLLABUS FOR IB ENGLISH II, 2010-2011 Congratulations! You have arrived at the final part of the journey begun when you came to Classen. The end is within your reach. Please share this information with your parents. As our fourteenth IB Diploma class, you have quite a legacy to uphold. This syllabus outlines the process and procedure for our course of study, detailing the curriculum that will you prepare you to sit the IB English A1 exams in May 2011, as well as either of the AP English exams. I encourage all of you to contact any school you are considering to see how many hours they award for what score on which IB or AP exam. Generally speaking, for AP scores of 3 out of 5, you earn one semester of English--ex: a 3 or 4 on AP Lang or AP Lit = 3 hours college freshman English; a 5, usually 6 hours or 2 semesters. The schools that recognize IB probably give credit only for HL exams. At OU for example, a 4 out of 7 in IB English earns you 2 semesters or 6 hours. IB is currently working with universities to award some credit for SL exams.
