AP English III
Tonight you have a few things to complete to prepare for our next class meeting. First, please read and annotate Stephanie Erickson's "The Ways We Lie". It is available in the first edition of 50 Essays or at this link. As you read, pay attention to the way that Erickson sections her piece and the way that she uses definitions in her article. You may also want to consider how this piece relates to Didion and Capote, especially as regards their idea of truth and lies.
Following that, make sure that you have reviewed Section III of In Cold Blood as well as the vocabulary for that section on your sheet. We'll be working on the vocabulary in earnest next class in the computer lab.
Tonight for homework we have some writing to do and some planning to do. Please follow the instructions on your assignment sheet to review the prompt and to then complete the planning on the front. You should then use the back of the sheet to draft your response. This will allow me and Ms. McCormick to understand where you're starting as a writer this year.
