Product Description
The 2017 AP English Language synthesis essay was on the future for the public library. This resource is designed by a teacher who scored this essay for the CB in the summer of 2017 in Tampa. Suggestions for being successful on synthesis essays are part of the resource.

Students will view supporting video and audio clips on understanding the argument for the future of the public library. There is a Ted Talk on the future of the libraries. Also, students will listen to various NPR stories on libraries. There is a link to a This American Life segment where a library has after hour activities designed to engage teenagers.

The lessons feature a link to the 2017 examination prompt on the synthesis essay and libraries. Students will work on crafting a thesis sentence. Instructions and strategies are included on how to teach a rhetorical précis and the Socratic Seminar.

These lessons fit any Honors Literature class, Pre-AP, American Literature, World Literature or AP English Language or Literature class to prepare students for AP English Language exams, Common Core extended response assessments, American Literature Course exams, the SAT and ACT essay and critical thinking activities. I have added an addendum that describes how to adapt the lessons for ELL students.

The packet includes complete lessons, Common Core standards, essential and key questions. Now adaptable for ESOL classes.
