    This weeklong unit, which fulfills the skills listed in the CED for Short Fiction Unit II, guides students on a focused analysis of prose. Each lesson helps AP Lit and other advanced literature students understand how prose elements such as diction, syntax, point of view, tone, and other elements can shape a textual excerpt and drive the meaning of an entire novel or play. Each lesson is split into four separate activities:

    • A warm-up textual excerpt and small group analysis focused on the selected literary element
    • A PowerPoint lesson expanding on the focused literary element, providing examples from popular films or movies to help generate interest
    • A whole group textual excerpt for students to annotate and discuss in small groups. Some discussion questions are included to generate discussion. Sample annotations and a teacher study guide is included to guide this discussion activity.
    • A formative assessment in the form of a prose analysis from a released AP Lit exam. Students can annotate and brainstorm a response as homework, or write a full essay if you wish.
    • All notes and assignments are available as print-and-go resources and digitally fr use through Google Classroom and other distance learning methods.

    These lessons are connected into a full week unit with a completed timed writing acting as a summative assessment.

    Analyze how an author’s choices concerning how to structure specific parts of a text (e.g., the choice of where to begin or end a story, the choice to provide a comedic or tragic resolution) contribute to its overall structure and meaning as well as its aesthetic impact.
    Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in the text, including figurative and connotative meanings; analyze the impact of specific word choices on meaning and tone, including words with multiple meanings or language that is particularly fresh, engaging, or beautiful.
    Analyze the impact of the author’s choices regarding how to develop and relate elements of a story or drama (e.g., where a story is set, how the action is ordered, how the characters are introduced and developed).
    Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.
