PAINTT for AP MC
Special thanks to Katrina Edwards from Galena Park ISD for her brilliant demonstration of how to use the acronym PAINTT as a reading strategy when working the AP MC. Katrina asks her students to write the acronym at the bottom of their passage. P-Purpose, A-Audience, I-Irony, N/S Narrator/Speaker, T-Tone, T-Theme. Katrina demonstrated on Auden's "The Lonely Betters" at the University of Houston APSI in July. After reading the poem and concentrating on each element, charting as they read, students are guaranteed to answer the questions with increased accuracy. Katrina says she asks her students to invest most of their time (7 minutes in this case) in the reading and charting of PAINTT, answering the questions should only take three minutes after a thorough reading. It worked for me!
