Product Description
"How to Read Literature Like a Professor," by Thomas C. Foster, is a great way to introduce juniors, seniors, and college students to the study of literature. My AP Literature seniors read this as one of their required summer books, so we began the year with the activities, quarter project, and the test. The discussion topics, chapter activities (and student samples), project, and test (with answer) key are all included. Now, as we continue our study of novels, short stories, plays, and poetry, we have a common language to use. October 2016: I am adding to this product with the following items: a copy of "The Dead"; a 40-question test on "The Dead" with answer key; an assignment or project to apply all of Foster's key ideas from each chapter to "The Dead"; and that same project to apply to any novel, in this case, I am having my AP Literature students get into groups of 3-4 and each group will read the same novel and complete the project as a group. They will have mini Socratic seminars three times for discussing their book in class. All other work is on their own time. The project is appropriate for individual students/novels as well. A scoring rubric for the project is also included.
