    Zen in the Art of Writing Study and Discussion Guide | Chapter-By-Chapter Q & A

    A GREAT resource for AP Language and Composition! I instructed my AP Lang and Comp students read Bradbury's amazing text to improve their own compositions, as well as to analyze the rhetorical choices of other authors we studied in class.

    Keywords have been bolded to guide students through new and familiar terms (many of which are applicable to the AP Lang & Comp course and exam!)

It can be in any style they wish – poem, narrative, dialogue, etc.
