I created this unit for Shakespeare’s The Tempest for my AP Literature classes. The unit includes a calendar, quizzes and keys, a study guide and discussion questions, many of which could be used as impromptu prompts, a close reading exercise, two specific impromptu essay prompts, and a unit test with an objective section and impromptu essay prompts. I ask students to find and analyze literary criticisms, so I include a sample of the analysis handout I use. In order to focus on textual analysis, I also ask students to practice a strict essay structure and I include a handout on that and an essay template to clarify the structure. To encourage formal discussion, I have an assignment I designate “Discussion Tasks,” which asks students to generate questions and comments that delve into the characters, themes, and literary techniques of the work, encouraging academic discussion.
