English Literature and Composition: First Time

About the Workshop

This four-day workshop will provide an overview of an AP® Literature and Composition class based on College Board® guidelines and objectives with an emphasis on strategies for reading and analyzing fictional texts through oral discussions and written responses. Using contemporary and classic texts, participants will explore a variety of instructional strategies for reading and analyzing poetry and prose passages. They will examine course and syllabi design, the AP® exam, works of literary merit, novel openings, and effective writing strategies. They will compare various genres, literary themes, and author techniques with an emphasis on ways to help students effectively incorporate such strategies in their approach to interpreting and evaluating literature. Throughout the institute, the focus will be less about what to teach and more about how to teach students to read, analyze, and write effectively, confidently, and independently.
