    This bundle includes everything you need to teach Thomas C. Foster's How to Read Literature Like a Professor® to AP® English Literature students to both in-class and distance learners. This massive resource contains the following:

    Notes and Mini-Lessons

    • 118 slides of detailed notes, with applications to Foster's text and beyond, including novels, plays, songs, poems, film, and television
    • 21 pages of textual excerpts and handouts for additional learning
    • 26-page student note packet, following the slideshow notes


    • 26 individual bell-ringers, beginning each lesson with a thought-provoking question that matches the corresponding chapter


    • 26 5-point quizzes, in both Word and PDF form
    • 26 answer keys

    Typography Posters

    • 2 custom made typography posters, available in PDF and JPEG format


    • A 40 page Hyperdoc with interactive blocks for students to study HTRLLAP in virtual, hybrid, and classroom learning (see the video preview for a walkthrough of this resource)
    • *To access the hyperdoc you will need a gmail account. TpT suggests you use a personal gmail account, as many district-run gmail accounts will not open files that aren't from your own network.

    This resource is built around Foster's 2014 Revised edition. You will need a copy of the book in order to teach this, but I take care of everything else!

    This resource is also available in my AP Lit Full Course Bundle!

    Provide a concluding statement or section that follows from and supports the argument presented.
    Establish and maintain a formal style and objective tone while attending to the norms and conventions of the discipline in which they are writing.
    Use words, phrases, and clauses as well as varied syntax to link the major sections of the text, create cohesion, and clarify the relationships between claim(s) and reasons, between reasons and evidence, and between claim(s) and counterclaims.
    Develop claim(s) and counterclaims fairly and thoroughly, supplying the most relevant evidence for each while pointing out the strengths and limitations of both in a manner that anticipates the audience’s knowledge level, concerns, values, and possible biases.
    Introduce precise, knowledgeable claim(s), establish the significance of the claim(s), distinguish the claim(s) from alternate or opposing claims, and create an organization that logically sequences claim(s), counterclaims, reasons, and evidence.
