Homework for B-Day Students: Weekend Edition - 9/4/2015

AP English III

This weekend for homework you have a few things to read and consider as we start moving to the end of Kozol and into The Grapes of Wrath.  I would like for you to read "On Compassion" by B.L. Ascher which is in 50 Essays or at this link.  Read and annotate the piece closely:  pay attention to her argument and the way in which she proves the argument to us as an audience.  How does she appeal to ethos, pathos, and logos?

In addition, read over chapter twelve in Kozol as well as his Epilogue.  For the Epilogue, look at it only as a conclusion - go to your notes on a conclusion and notice how he does what he needs to do over the course of several pages.

You'll be getting your outlines back next class - be ready to start revising!

English II

Your homework for this weekend is the same as the A-day students below.  Using your vocabulary bookmark select five words from our study so far and use them to write a short story (about 100 words) about someone borrowing money from another person.  Try to include some conflict in the story because that always happens when people borrow money.  When you turn in your story you will also turn in your vocabulary bookmark to get full credit!
