This product includes all the resources for AP book groups or literature circles to enrich student breadth of reading. For these book groups, students select a novel with several other classmates, read it outside of class, and participate in three class periods (spaced over several weeks) devoted to the book groups. The resources in this product include: directions for the teacher; a PowerPoint of highlights on 6 novels for students to choose from; an additional list of novels of literary merit to choose from; an assignment sheet for students detailing their responsibilities and the timeline of the "unit"; a halfway point discussion worksheet and writing activity; and a final discussion and writing activity worksheet. This set of resources gives students choice in selecting their novel, but also provides meaningful learning opportunities particularly with the open-ended free response question from the AP exam in mind. Although I include 6 spotlight novels to choose from, these resources can be used with ANY novels of literary merit. This is a favorite for student engagement.
