Overview

In line with its commitment to academic rigor, EMC Publishing offers a new series of guides for teaching Advanced Placement® (AP®) English literature. EMC’s Guide to AP Literature series provides teachers multiple opportunities to teach students the skills necessary to succeed not only on the AP English Literature and Composition Exam but also in college-level reading, thinking, discussing, and writing about literature. The initial ten titles in the series include those often cited on the exam and studied in high school programs.

EMC’s Guide to AP Literature series provides teacher and student editions for each literary work. The Teacher Edition, designed for both novice and experienced instructors, is organized into these sections:

  1. An introduction that addresses how to teach the literary selection within the context of a high school English program (vertical alignment) and offers classroom reading and activity schedules
  2. Background information about the author and the work, including coverage of relevant social, political, and historical issues
  3. Strategies for teaching the literary work, complete with prereading, classroom reading, and postreading activities
  4. Comprehensive explanations and activities for conducting a literary analysis of the work, along with an introduction to theories of literary criticism
  5. An overview of the AP English Literature and Composition Exam and guidelines for how best to prepare students for taking it

Each accompanying Student Edition is a workbook that provides sample multiple-choice questions and both types of free-response questions (analysis essay questions and open-response prompts), simulating the actual questions students will encounter on the AP examination. The practice questions are designed to give students exposure, practice, and confidence prior to taking the exam.*
