Reading Links

"Critical reading--active engagement and interaction with texts--is essential to your academic success... and to your intellectual growth" ("Interrogating Texts" --Harvard Library) 

Developing a mastery for the information in the following links is critical to your success in AP English and beyond.  Print them out, mark them up and study them. If you need to have them with you while you read initially, that's fine too.  The point is to improve as a reader; improving as a writer will naturally follow.

Critical and active reading is the most empowering skill you will ever learn in your academic career.
