Included in my AP English summer work is a literary device essay. As I haven't taken the class yet, I'm not sure where to start. Can anyone give me some basics to start with such as format, method, etc.?

To start off, there are a few different ways to structure your essay but the most basic is this: Introduction (includes a hook, a transition, your thesis), body paragraph 1 (use at least two pieces of evidence from the text to prove your point), body paragraph 2 (same as before), body 3 (same), and then a conclusion (take what you've proven throughout the essay and weave your hook into it all, talk about how what you wrote about is relevant, stuff like that).
Here's a list of the most basic literary devices to get you started: http://olc.spsd.sk.ca/de/resources/litdevices/index.html
I'm not sure what your school uses, but most schools use MLA as the required format. Here's a reference site for MLA: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/01/
And just cuz I want to know, what book are you reading?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Literary_technique. This looks a rather basic but key part of English Language and Literature Study I say this for myself as much as you.
http://literary-devices.com/ Looks like you should experiment with brainstormed pieces using the various types of Literary Device so an invitation to play.
And work. A Writing habit would be useful here and the ability and strength of character to make a total arse of it and be ok. So just learning them, learning how to use them and then ultimately to recognise them. So and so is overusing allegory when he should be using metaphor seems to be par for the Course.
