Homework for B-Day Students: 28 September

AP English III

We've started with our unit on The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.  Your first reading deadline for the book will be on Tuesday when you will be expected to read to the end of chapter six.  Make sure that you are thoroughly annotating and adding to your cover annotations as well as collecting vocabulary.

Tonight you should complete the drafting of your rough draft for our workshop on Friday and read Amy Tan's "Mother Tongue".  The essay by Tan is available at this link or in 50 Essays.  As you read, think about language and vernacular and how that is used to characterize a person in the view of society.  You can also collect vocabulary.

English II

Now that you have your progress reports you can move forward to complete any missing assignments that you may have.  Additionally, keep thinking about the reading from Dr. King that we completed in class today.  What do you think that Dr. King would say to Helmuth about breaking the law?
