This complete, ready-to-go unit will excite students and help you establish a classroom community. The lessons and activities will get students talking, goal-setting, moving, reading, and writing as they explore what it means to be an AP Language and Composition student. EDITABLE lesson plans and PowerPoint slides make it easy for you to modify the unit to suit your schedule and needs.
While this five-day unit is designed for the beginning of the school year, the lessons and activities could be used flexibly. It would also be particularly helpful at the beginning of a new semester as a refresher or "reset" of norms, expectations, and understanding of the work of an AP Lang & Comp scholar.
