AP Literature and Composition® First About Reading, Second About Writing **IN PERSON** presented by Edward Schmieder – 8:30-2:30pm

March 11 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

Although the course title gives equal billing to reading and writing, the format of the exam makes it clear that reading supersedes writing well. How? The multiple-choice section is all reading (no writing) and two of the three essays are written responses to sight-read texts. Consequently, reading-well is the thing. In fairness, one practice addressing a MC passage will be included. In this full-day workshop, we will focus on prose passages and poems (some from past exams) practicing a number of strategies engagement and focus. In alignment with the course’s framework, focus will center five of the six Big Ideas: -Character, -Setting, -Structure, -Narration, and -Figurative Language. Of course, Tone straddles Narration and Figurative Language. Attitude is everywhere! Also, because we know all our students suffer from poetry-deficit-disorder, poems will have pride of place between the two genres. A Q and A will wrap up the day. Audience: New or Veteran AP English Lit Teachers and HS Teachers of AP Lit Bound Students Eligible for 6 hours CTLE credit. Can use 1 Consortium seat. If district pays, district approval must be confirmed prior to start of session.
