Included are two AP Language Synthesis essay prompts on Harry Potter. I created this back when the novels first came out and were so popular. The two prompts are slightly different and use some of the same sources. I've also included additional editorial cartoons that you could add or swap out. This can be used in any class, not just an AP course. It can be easily adapted for a 9th or 10th grade class to meet many Common Core standards: synthesis, citing, persuasion, etc. It's a fun topic to write on, even for those who aren't Harry Potter fans. It's also a good way to re-introduce your students to a wonderful series!
