If you have tried TPCASTT before, but have not had success this might be the lesson plan and prezi you need to get your students interested in poetry and able to access the huge variety they may get on the AP Test. This 6-7 day unit gets your students to access poetry through looking at a favorite song and comparing it to a poem that has appeared on the AP test in a slideshow format. Students will unknowingly encounter over 40 poems in 6 days and feel prepared to practice and write for the AP Literature Test. They will be engaged from start to finish, and no one will feel like they tied a poem to a chair and beat with a hose as Billy Collins likes to say. Enjoy poetry again and get your students to, too!
