AP English III
This weekend you have a few things to be working on in preparation for our last three classes before Thanksgiving break. First, you need to read Amy Tan's "Mother Tongue" for class on Tuesday. This is a great piece to investigate the connection between language and identity. Use that as your main anchor to help you to get through this piece. The article can be found in 50 Essays or at this address.
Beyond this you will need to complete the reading and annotating of chapters one through six of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Thursday the 21st. Feel free to read ahead. Lastly, we will have our second argumentative timed writing on the 25th. Be prepared for that!
Today in class I went over with you our new vocabulary and our new verbs for this unit. Now you will use this new vocabulary to complete a floor plan project, in Russian. Follow the instructions on your assignment sheet to the letter. Remember that you only need to write ten sentences in Russian about three different rooms. Use your verbs! Use your notes! Ask me for help with your writing if you need it. Floor plans and writing assignments are due on the 21st and 22nd. You will be presenting on one of your rooms in Russian, so do be prepared to read to the class.
