AP Literature Research

On this page, I will list all of the approved works and thesis statements by class, student, work, and date. No two students may analyze the same literary work.  Once a student has an approved topic and thesis, no other student may submit a similar topic and thesis. Once approved, a thesis may not be revised, nor may a topic be changed.
