A.P. Lit Is Finding the "Tip" in MulTIPle Choice: January 9, 2015

Focus: What can we expect of the multiple choice section on the AP Literature exam?

1. Warming up: Decoding the test
  • Classifying the passages (examples: Prose, 19th century-ish?, or Poetry, Modern)
  • Ranking the passages for level of difficulty
  • Identifying types of questions
  • Finding the "Tip" word in each question
  • Circling the answers you initially chose and giving me back your scantrons
2. Speed dating: Find the right match for you...wait, no.  Find the right match for each M.C. question

3. Talking through the tricky sections as a class

1. Make sure your poetry packet is complete and shared with me.  It would be lovely if it were print-ready.

2. First poetry response is due Monday.

3. If you haven't done so yet, finish your critical reading proposal, and acquire and start reading your critical review book.
