This 45-page program--full of discussions, models, and practice activities--takes kids though the entire process of writing an AP Lit essay. It follows as such: "What Does 'Meaning as a Whole' Mean," "What Does 'Contribute to the Work as a Whole' Mean," "AP Lit Grading Rubric," "Addressing the Prompt--Getting Started," "Using the Short-Version Prompt Deconstruction Scaffold To Dissect Prompts," "Using the Full-Version Prompt Deconstruction Scaffold To Dissect Prompts and Collect Evidence," "Three Model Intros," "The Intro Writing Checklist," "Practice Writing Full Intros," "Preparing to Write Full AP Essays," "Most Common Problems To Avoid."
After this program, kids are ready to practice essay writing until the exam.
I have a decade-long, 90% passage rate on the AP Lit exam, and these are the exact materials that I use.
There is one caveat. I cannot sell College Board's materials, so you will need to copy and paste your own AP prompts into the provided text boxes.
I have worked on these materials for years. I hope you find them helpful.
Uploaded as a Word doc so you have full editing power.
