AP Lang Test Prep 2020

As we venture into weeks of test prep in this unique situation, I just want to say that you are doing an AMAZING job juggling the demands of both work and personal life. Our current environment requires us to adapt, and we shall. We are resolute. We are resilient. We are teachers. I will collaborate with anyone who wishes to be part of this blog to share best practices when teaching the rhetorical analysis essay. You will get credit for your creativity. Let’s do this!!!

Essential Handouts

Since our students will not be able to annotate directly on the passage, I created a handout for notes to assist them with a close reading of the prompt and passage.

  • Prompt and Passage Notes handout
  • Rhetorical Appeals and Devices handout
  • Sentence Starters handout credit to our AP Summer Program teachers Amy Chapman and Sarah Orgil
  • Strong Verbs and Transitions handout
  • Unicorn good luck charm from Amazon link

I'm an experienced high school English teacher sharing best practices to inform, to inspire and to reflect on my own craft. Love implementing new ideas and efficient systems that make teaching manageable. Teachers need a surmountable amount of support to help them survive, and every year comes with its own challenges. When I am not teaching or creating, I love hiking, running, anything outdoorsy! I am also a mother of two boys, one in college the other in his last year of middle school. Hope you can utilize what I create and share on this platform.
