Product Description
This print-and-go packet includes five AP-style argument essay prompts based on The Glass Castle, by Jeanette Walls.

Controversial prompts are based on the following subjects that appear in the novel: parenting, homelessness, bending the rules, compassion, hate, hypocrisy, and responding to a maxim, or familiar saying. Student must take a position and support with appropriate evidence.

These can be stand-alone prompts or can be incorporated into a novel study of The Glass Castle.

Since there are five different prompts, different groups in the class could be assigned different prompts for debate, planning, and writing; or simply use as an individual essay prompt in preparation for the AP test.

Another activity I have found successful is where groups of five students each have one of the five prompts. They read, annotate, and write a thesis statement for the specific prompt they are given. Then, after 8 minutes or designated time, students rotate papers and have to develop and write the first piece of evidence and commentary to support the thesis. After 8 minutes, pass again and students write the second piece of evidence and commentary, and so on. The last person could add a counterargument or concession. Finally, the students get back their original papers and can read over the development.
