Learning to quickly and effectively break down an AP Literature essay prompt is essential to testing success.
I cut into strips all of the old released poetry prompts from past AP Lit tests (included). Each day, students take one and glue it and this graphic organizer into their Interactive Notebook. They complete the graphic organizer using the prompt.
Students get approximately 5-7 minutes to complete the organizer. We complete one a day as a warm-up or bellringer during each of the poetry units in the curriculum.
The graphic organizer and the list of prompts is uploaded as a Word document so you may edit to fit your curriculum and instruction.
