Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a new-comer to AP Literature and Composition, you know the daunting task of engaging students with the type of literature that will both provide them with the experience they need to pass the AP Test but also excite them about what they are learning. These lessons will not only hook your students' interest, but they will also thoroughly build their confidence as they encounter 17 former AP Literature prompts, and you have access to an Updated AP Literature and Composition Rubric that will ease your anxiety around that transition for the 2019-2020 school year and beyond. This semester-long course is developed for the first semester, but it can easily be adapted with the blank spring calendar included. The calendar reveals an outline of a typical 90-day semester to give you an idea of how the course works. Detailed daily lesson plans are provided above the weeks they pertain to and include daily objectives aligned to CCSS along with agendas for 50-60 min. classes. Within each agenda handouts, prezis, slideshows, videos, practice essays, etc. are linked to provide you with everything you need to teach the entire course for one term, but you can also review the units and organize them to accommodate your own schedule and preferences. Follows the historical timeline of literature beginning with Middle English and Chaucer, Shakespeare’s Hamlet, and options of Frankenstein, Jane Eyre, or Pride and Prejudice as well as their own choice Book Club. All of these texts are in the public domain, so they can be downloaded for free on most devices if you do not have access to these texts. Built-in days for flexibility and fall semester holidays (which can easily be edited for spring) and ideas for interventions and extensions provided. Get ready for both you and your students to enjoy the AP Literature and Composition adventure!
