50 passages for practicing close reading and analysis

(Formerly: APAdvantage English Literature.) By Barbara Bloy. Help students hone their skills on texts taken from the genres and periods covered by the AP English Literature exam. With over 50 passages from fiction, drama, and poetry, this skill book presents the techniques of rigorous close reading demanded by the exam. A “background and purpose” note introduces each passage, which is accompanied by a series of questions that practice “using skills to understand the passage” and an essay question. Analysis of the skill questions and guidelines for responding to the essay question follow. Additional passages for independent analysis are included. Authors span the literary spectrum from Chaucer to Toni Morrison. Special features include a glossary and a chart of literary terms arranged by category. The 20-page teacher’s guide provides commentary and a scoring guide for the independent analysis passages. Peoples Publishing. 224 pages. ©2006.literaturetestprep
