In this bundle of two resources, I’ve compiled what has worked well for me and my AP Language and Composition students while teaching The Crucible and The Things They Carried.
Inside, you can find the following:
- Response and discussion questions for each reading section - can be used for writing, group and class discussions, and Socratic Seminars
- Quote analysis activities with models of analysis
- Annotations activities with an annotations guideline sheet and activity
- Thesis and diction exercises
- Tools for rhetorical analysis
- Pre-reading assignments with texts connected to the larger works
- More text-specific activities and projects.
- A process essay for The Crucible with guidelines for each step of the writing process
- Socratic seminar guidelines for Margaret Atwood’s “Half-Hanged Mary” as well as a jigsaw activity for this poem
- Silent discussion activities
- And more!
I’ve constructed each unit with rhetorical analysis for AP Lang in mind, so students read each text through this mindset and practice skills that are relevant to the exam.
Please see the provided links within the preview for full a more comprehensive look at each. If the links do not work, please use the links below.
If you have any questions, feel free to use the Q and A function. I’m happy to answer any questions you have!
