Homework for B-Day Students: 28 October 2015

AP English III

For next class you don't have any reading to complete, but I would make sure that you have thoroughly read and annotated the text up to and including Chapter Fifteen.  For homework, make sure that you have brainstormed five good topics for your future essay on The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.  Keep in mind that these don't need to be thoroughly developed, in fact you'll go through the process of better developing them later.  Focus on main ideas/topics/motifs and other back cover information to get you started.

Also you have vocabulary cards due on Tuesday next week.  You'll need to do five new cards for five new words.  Don't forget to find the word origin and its meaning as well as the differences in meaning between the synonyms.  These were the places where many of you lost points before.

English II

Next class we will collect your compare/contrast paragraphs on your life versus Marji's life.  Remember that your writing should be on a separate piece of paper, and it should be about eight to ten sentences long with four clear examples (two from you, two from Marji) and explanation of how these examples make you similar and different.
