ENGLISH Literature / Composition

During our AP Summer Institute, we will work with each of the main areas of the Literature exam—the multiple choice questions, poetry essay, prose essay, and “open” essay—and discuss different ways to prepare our students with the skills they will need on the AP test. We will collaborate on strategies, practice test-taking, analyze readings and share best practices. We will also discuss the scoring process for the test and review the current year’s Lit exam essay questions.
