Homework for the Weekend - B Day Students - 4/24/2015

AP English III

Over the weekend you have two important things to take care of to prepare for next week's class on Tuesday.  First, make sure that you complete your motif project for Invisible Man.  This has a few pieces:  your writing on the quotation, your illustration of the quotation, and then your motif chart for the whole text.  I'll collect these on Tuesday.

Second, complete the reading and annotating of the first story "The Things They Carried".  Pay special attention to the characters that are part of the platoon.  In addition, consider our ideas of truth and honesty as they relate to art.  We did a lot of foundation laying today in our approach to this text.

If you have time/energy, you may want to look at some of the shorter stories which will be taught by you all in small groups.  These stories are:  "Love", "Spin", "The Dentist", "Stockings", "Good Form", and "Night Life".  These are relatively short - you may want to see if you have any preferences as to these stories before we pick/assign them next week for discussion circles.

English II

Today we started the process of working on our essay outlines with the computers and resources in the lab.  You should continue this work this weekend.  First, outline your first topic that you'll use in your essay.  For most of you, this is an example of what you think the best way is to remember a tragedy.  Remember that you need to describe this "text" and explain how it proves your point about remembering tragedy.  Follow the formatting in the instructions document shared below.
