A step by step handout for students to properly attack the AP Prose and AP Poetry Critical Reading Free Response Essay Prompts. May also be used for any essay prompt based on literary style analysis. Can be used for brainstorming and formative or summative assessment. I give the form to my students with the AP prompts. The idea is to build a set of test taking skills that students will inherently utilize when tested on critical reading and an author's use of literary devices/techniques/voice.
