A.P. Literature Is Reviewing: December 10, 2014

Focus: What do we want to know about the AP Literature exam?

1. Warming up with some "big picture" blogging on Invisible Man

2. Engaging in a little Q&A about the AP exam
  • In section one, how many multiple choice questions are there?
  • How much time do we have to answer them?
  • How many passages can we expect to read in the multiple choice section?
  • Are the passages mostly poems or mostly prose?
  • Are the passages mostly modern or mostly traditional?
  • Should we try to answer every single question?
  • What percentage of our AP score is the multiple choice section worth?
  • About how much money is spent on creating the average multiple choice question?
  • How many essays do we write in the second section of the test?
  • How much time do we have to write these essays?
  • Do I have to write the essays in order?
  • For the open prompt, do I have to pick a book from the list?
  • Who grades the AP tests?

3. Taking a look at the essays (called "free responses") from the past three years and discussing strategies


1. Poetry project presentations begin tomorrow.
2. Keep turning those poetry essays!
3. Revisions?
