Homework for B-Day Students - 27 January 2015

And we're back to it everyone!  It's been good to see you again.  Here are your reminders for tonight:

English II

If you didn't finish the writing of your new question for Marquez make sure to finish that tonight so that we can have our writing workshop next class.

AP English III

Let's go over next class in order of importance:

  1. Your skit presentations will be happening next class.  Make sure that your background and script have been shared to me (mrmillerjhs @ gmail [dot] com) in advance of Friday's class.
  2. Make sure that you have practiced and prepared.  Have your props and costumes ready.
  3. Read Part One of Baldwin's "Notes of a Native Son".  The link is here.  It's also available in 50 Essays.  Continue to note what Baldwin is doing in relation to the ideas of The Harlem Renaissance that we discussed today in class.  Consider the similarities and differences between Baldwin's approach and Hurston's approach in their texts.  Annotate by taking notes if you can't print the text out.
  4. You'll need your copy of Invisible Man for Tuesday, February 2nd.
