Homework for the Weekend - 28 October - B Day

English II

We almost finished Hotel Rwanda today.  There's only a few minutes left, so we'll finish that up on Wednesday.  Also, don't forget that you have your reading in The Boy Who Dared.  Please read the pages on your comprehension questions (to the end of the book) and answer your questions as notes.  These will be very helpful for you as we prepare for our final exam on this first unit.

AP English III

One of your biggest things to work on this weekend is the rhetorical analysis for your group websites.  Remember that you need to first thoroughly annotate and read your piece looking for the author's argument and the means by which they accomplish and prove that argument.  It's best to organize around rhetorical/literary devices.  Sketch out your outline and start drafting.  You and your groups should have rough drafts complete by Friday of next week!

In terms of reading The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn make sure that you have thoroughly read and annotated the section up to Chapter Twenty-Four.  We'll work through that section on Wednesday's class and deal with the section up to Chapter Twenty-Eight on Friday.  Basically, we're shifting the reading down a day - please make sure that you are caught up, or even ahead!

Lastly, remember what I said moving forward.  This is a new experience, being in AP English, if you're doing it the same way you always have; that's just not going to cut it.
