Homework for B-Day Students - Wednesday, 7 January

AP English III

Very excellent discussion today about a piece which was challenging to our approach to The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.  It's always good to challenge yourself with a different perspective so that you can fully understand what you think.

For tonight, read David Sedaris's "Me Talk Pretty One Day."  It's available at this link.  You can also read the copy from 50 Essays, First Edition.  The other editions have a different Sedaris piece.  Make sure that if you use the piece from the link that you only read pages one through five, the essay itself.

In addition, remember that you have your exam on TAoHF on Tuesday next week and your presentation of your website projects on Thursday.  We'll spend time on Friday preparing for both of these things.

Lastly, you now have The Crucible.  I'd recommend starting to read now and try to get through to the end of Act II by the beginning of the third quarter.  We'll be racing through this piece, but it's pretty short so that's good.

Your reminders are in the A-day post below.  Just know that your speech final drafts are due for you on Tuesday, not Monday.
