Homework for A-Day Students - 11/19/2013

AP English III

First I'm going to repost the video we watched today in class from The Daily Show.  Remember the different elements of satire which we see in this clip, especially understatement and hyperbole.  Don't also to notice the tone and irony at work in the piece.
Now, remember the big question that we started discussing last class - does altering the language significantly alter the text and its meaning?  How does the altering of the illustrations hyperbolically align with the altering of the language and help show the argument of the show?

Also, don't forget to finish the reading.  You've got to be to the end of chapter six with complete annotations.  Be ready for a thorough discussion on Thursday!  Lastly, there's a timed writing waiting for you on Monday before Thanksgiving break!

Russian I

Tonight for homework you need to focus on finishing your writing and your floor plans for Thursday/Friday.  Remember that you will be reading your description of one room aloud to the class.  Don't forget that right now you can only use your possessive pronouns in the nominative case.  If you try to use them in the other cases this won't count against you, but the sentence technically won't be grammatically correct.

Lastly, you'll be reviewing with me next class to get ready for another quiz on sentence formation next week and the new vocabulary.  Be studying!
