These task cards review 44 notable literary terms for an AP Language and Composition course. The first 44 cards provide examples of a term that students identify and the last 36 cards provide sentence-length writing activities for most of the same terms for a total of 80 cards.
I also offer AP Lang and Comp Literary Terms Quizzes
to further review these terms. Both products are included in my AP Language and Composition Bundle
for a reduced price. Please don’t buy this item in addition to the bundle as it is already included.
Students can use these task cards to review, to build confidence and awareness leading up to the AP test and/or to practice writing with varied stylistic techniques. The cards may be used as bell-ringers, as early-finisher activities, as a group activity or as individual work. If you print out these cards on heavy paper stock or laminate them before cutting, you can use the cards for many years.
