This tool excellently prepares students for the essay portion of the AP Literature and Composition exam. It discusses--with models and examples--the biggest mistakes students make on the essays. It also guides them through a series of exercises that asks them to deconstruct essay prompts and to create outlines in response to actual AP prompts.
Due to copyright limitations, you will need to provide a list of previous AP Lit prompts (available at AP Central.com) and a copy of Elizabeth Bishops's poem "Five Flights Up," available online.
This "unit" as is takes a couple of weeks.
I uploaded it as a Word document so you an make changes.
