This activity provides students with the free response question 3 prompt commands used in each AP Literature and Composition Exam A since 1971. The student is first asked to select two works that would make for a suitable written response. Then, using one of the titles chosen, the student is charged with composing a working thesis that would lend itself to an appropriate essay. In the days leading up to the AP Lit & Comp Exam my students have found this exercise very useful for reviewing the literature covered in class, the types of commands found in FRQ3 and the drafting of a working thesis. This activity also promotes excellent class discussion.
