AP English III
Next week we have two big things on the horizon - your argumentative essay and your quiz/test on our philosophical pieces. We'll deal with the paper first and then the quiz/test (quest).
For your essay you will be required to submit your outline, rough draft with commentary from peer editing, and your final draft with rubric. We will complete a cover sheet for the essay in class before submitting and I will give you an envelope in which to submit everything.
For your bibliographies, I invite you to use the Purdue OWL for MLA Citation Style. On this page you will find everything you need to complete your bibliography and formatting. For your bibliographies, you should use this page for book references (Kozol, Steinbeck, etc.) and this page for online resources. If you need help I will make myself available on Monday to discuss only bibliographies and formatting questions, not to deal with the content of your essay.
For your quest on Thursday focus on the four pieces that we have studied in our philosophy unit: Emerson's "The Over-Soul", Thoreau's "Where I Lived, and What I Lived For", King's "Letter from a Birmingham City Jail" and lastly DuBois's Chapter One from The Souls of Black Folk. Look forward to a review on Tuesday - to prepare for the review, look over the texts and consider what we discussed with each text. Try to plan possible questions that we may ask you on this assessment.
You have no official homework this weekend, but if you missed the chance to turn in your project on time make sure that it gets in to me by Monday. In addition, if you are missing the Russian Literature Quiz, make that up by Wednesday afternoon as we are moving on to our next unit and the gradebook needs to be finalized.
