the meaning of the work as a whole. Do not merely summarize the plot. D. From one of your summer reading selections, select a moment or a scene that you find especially memorable. Write an essay in which you describe the moment or scene, explain its relationship to work in which it is found, and analyze the reasons for its effectiveness. Do not merely summarize the plot. E. You have read three summer reading selections written before 1910. Choose one of the selections and write an essay in which you present arguments for and against the work’s relevance for a person in 2013. Your own position should emerge in the course of your essay. Do not merely summarize the plot. 4. With the test, the answers to major works data sheets, and the essay, I am interested in seeing what you can do. Do not use any outside sources. 5. You have chosen to take AP Literature and Composition. You should be prepared to be challenged, to read literary works closely, and to write various types of essays as we prepare for the AP exam. If you want to purchase your own copies of the literary works, please feel free to do so; you will then be able to write notes throughout the pages of the text. If it helps you to keep some type of reading log as you read, feel free to do so. Throughout my high school and college career, I made many notes about literary works I was reading, not because the notes were assigned but because they helped me to remember the key points of the works.
