Homework for B-Day Students: 8 March 2016

English II

Next class we have our quiz on The Stranger, "After the Deluge" by Soyinka, and "The Myth of Sisyphus" by Camus.  You'll want to make sure that you've reviewed your notes on these stories and the information we went over in today's review game.

Pay close attention to vocabulary from Soyinka and from The Stranger.  That'll be an important part of the quiz.

For tonight - you should make sure that you are studying and that you complete your writing planning sheet - especially the back.  Make sure that you have found yourself a quotation from the book and thought about how this quote from The Stranger applies to your overall idea in your essay.  Remember that this will follow up your personal example paragraph.

AP English III

There's a lot for you all to take care of today and I'll go through that in order of when it is due.

Next class we'll finish our seminar on Chapters 11-15 and we will discuss "Two Ways to Belong in America" - the article is at this link and in 50 Essays.  Since we'll finish the seminar next class you will not have to post your analysis and synthesis posts until after next class.  Make sure that you read Mukherjee and annotate it carefully.  You have your next chunk of Invisible Man reading on Monday.

We're working through our rough drafts and writing conferences.  Remember that the final due date for these packets is the first day after Spring Break.  You must turn in all components in your final packet.  I'll have the final rubric for you soon for the paper so that you have it for your final edits.  Remember that the week of March 21 - 24 is free for second conferences by drop-in.

Keep in find the final project for our motifs and blogs.  Hopefully you were able to settle down some of the key ideas for your murals.
