The Hazlitt prompt "On the Want of Money" from the 2006 AP exam is a perfect compliment to the satire unit. I time the students in class to simulate an AP testing experience. The satirical essay examines the "horrible" effects that middle-class life has upon people. This resource is part of the Satire Unit collection.
