English Literature and Composition: First Time (ENGL.1260)

About the Workshop

The AP® English Literature and Composition Institute focuses both on the AP® examination itself and the coursework that leads to student success on the exam and in college. We will consider a variety of designs for AP® English courses, taking into account the standards and experiences that promote sophisticated reading and writing. The choice of appropriate texts, strategies for encouraging discussion and close reading, and practical class plans form a basis for group discussion. Significant portions of the workshop are devoted to teaching poetry, prose analysis, and writing. Teachers learn how the AP® exam is designed, developed, and scored. Participating teachers have the opportunity to review various sample tests and review grading rubrics and model essays.
