Homework for the Weekend - A Day Students

I believe that I posted this yesterday, but just to make sure that we're all clear.

AP English III

This weekend you need to make sure to acquire your copy of Invisible Man - remember that I prefer you get the red and white cover or the green cover so that we will have matching page numbers.  We won't start our reading of this book for a week or so, but I do recommend that you start reading it now to get ahead.  This book will challenge you due to its post-modern style and type of narration.  It's not like Huck Finn where you have the language issues of understanding, it's just confusingly written.  Struggle and get through it and remember, Ellison is confusing you on purpose.  Think about why he would confuse you and how this perhaps relates to the experiences of the narrator and Black society as a whole.

Russian I

Over the weekend you should study your new vocabulary as well as the adjectives from chapter two.  Focus this weekend on your verbs, nouns, and adjectives.  We'll be working with those next week.  Be sure that you come in to class on Wednesday/Thursday with your study aid of choice for vocabulary.
