Free AP Language & Composition Materials (Organized by Paper Type)

Updated: Dec 18, 2022


I taught AP Lang & Comp for eightish years before I had to switch to IB Lit & Lang, and over the years I attempted to organize my AP class in a few different ways: by topic, by American lit time period, and by paper.


Organizing by topic ended up being my favorite way to construct the class, but below are the materials I used when I tried to organize by paper. These materials ultimately came in handy however I taught the class since, at some point in any given year, I would have to teach all of these papers. This post is a work in progress. First I emptied out the materials I had saved in Word and just yesterday (10/12), I started emptying out the stuff in my Google Drive.


This blog is organized by paper type (open, rhetorical analysis, and synthesis), and then there are a few multiple choice materials at the end. I hope some of this stuff is helpful to you!
