AP English Literature: Core Works
Directions: Please use this page to share ideas, materials, and lessons for major texts that you may teach in your AP English Literature class. Don't forget that each page also has a discussion tab at the top, so if you have questions, please post them there. The discussion tab is next to the "Edit" tab above this text. Feel free to add to this list if you don't see something here. [I'm playing around with how to structure this page. Should I list works by title alphabetically? Should works be grouped by author? Theme?...]
