It’s All Happening at AP Central
  • AP Teacher Community -- Join the AP English community, a combined group for Language & Literature. New version of the old ListServ.
  • AP English Files -- non-official Yahoo Group, which organizes posted files for member access.
Binder Materials Focused Workshops

Binder -- The binder material from my APSIs is a very large file, approximately 250 pages in .PDF format. A DropBox link will be provided to donors upon request.

Donors who contribute at least $25.00 will receive a DropBox link to the contents of the binder and other files I hand out at AP Summer Institutes (Please download the contents. Using the files “in the cloud” slows down access for all).

Literary Goodies -- Terminology, Background, Best Handouts, Overview Handouts

These handouts are usually about 20-25 pages long and were developed for workshops one hour long.

Useful Sites

  • A Scrapbook of Styles: Passages for Rhetorical Analysis --These excerpts on About.com illustrate some of the key stylistic traits of their well-known authors. Each is about a page long if you reformat by pasting into a word processor. The short introductions analyze each piece and help focus discussion.
  • TED Ed: Lessons Worth Sharing -- Based upon the regular TED Talks (also a great resource) and a library of original animated videos, TedEd provides a platform for teachers to share lessons based on the videos. Lessons include sections on Watch, Think, Dig Deeper, and Discuss. All can be customized.

Literary Theory and Criticism

Teacher Sites -- Where have all the teachers gone? On sabbatical, into administration, to commercial sites. So sorry.
