Homework for B Day Students: 16 April 2015

AP English III

Today is Ralph Ellison's death day.  He died on this day in 1994.  Remember that by reading him he continues to live.

For the weekend you should do some serious work on your motif projects.  Hopefully by this point you've been completing your motif chart, you've reexamined your chapter under consideration, and you've selected a quotation.  Now - plan your illustration of the quote.  Think about arrangement and design of the words.  Consider your work to pair it with illustrated meaning.  Plan your writing.  Three paragraphs for the three parts of the question.  Once you've selected your quote you are able to do this, so remember, pick your quote first.

Also you need to read chapter twenty-five to prepare for Monday's class.  We'll finish reading it in class on Monday.  This will bring us to start The Things They Carried next Friday.  There will be a timed writing to finish Invisible Man on Wednesday.  We'll be transitioning on Wednesday to Vietnam.

English II

Your post below will go over your homework for tonight.  Read the two journal excerpts from Holocaust survivors about their experiences living in the ghetto.  As you read, underline elements of the text which tell you about living conditions in the ghetto.  Compare and contrast these to the experiences that Anne has living in the Annex.  We'll be reading more of Anne next week, but it's important for us to look at the experiences of the other victims of the Shoah.
