AP English 12 Literature and Composition

Summer 2020 Assignment

Purchase and read the following:

A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen 

How to Read Literature Like a Professor: A Lively and Entertaining Guide to Reading Between the Lines, Revised Edition by Thomas C. Foster

Assignment:  Create a slides presentation.  In this presentation, you should create one slide for each chapter of Foster’s book.  

For each slide: put the chapter number and title at the top.  On the left hand side of each slide, create an overview of the most important points and characteristics of each chapter in a bulleted list of points, including any important quotes.   On the right side of each slide, list specific examples from at least two previous texts you have studied over the past few years.  So, for example, The Scarlet Letter, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Crucible, Huck Finn, Romeo and Juliet, etc.  Also, include an example from  A Doll’s House (whenever applicable).  I want you to be as specific as possible with your examples, although I do not expect you to have quotes in this part.  We will begin the year with this work.


Please email me over the summer if you have any questions or concerns at
