ADVANCED PLACEMENT SHORT STORY
Challenging Approaches for Honors, Gifted, and AP English Classes
Book with reproducible pages
A sophisticated collection of 36 teacher plans and student handouts based on seven short stories (included) by well-known writers. The activities may be used in many ways. They may heighten awareness of how plot, theme, character, setting, point of view, and style interconnect; they may give students practice in answering the sort of multiple-choice and essay questions they will meet on the AP exams; or they may simply illuminate the art of the short story as practiced by some of its masters: E.B. White, Katherine Mansfield, Langston Hughes, Tillie Olsen, Raymond Carver, Sean O’Faolain, and Bernard Malamud. Index. Supplemental reading list. Spiralbound. 8½" x 11". Center for Learning. 209 pages. ©1993.
