AP English III:
There are a few things that you need to take care of tonight for next class. First, we have the post below which is the three essays to analyze and score. Remember to read each essay, give a score from one to nine (highest) and justify the score. You can do this in your synthesis pack for this question or in your notebooks.
Second, we have vocabulary work. Select two words from three authors we have studied and do a vocabulary study for each word. In the study be sure to include the word, part of speech, source quotation, citation, definition, word parts and meaning, and synonyms with details as to how the meaning is different. We'll share some of our words on Thursday.
Lastly, we have the reading of Brent Staples's "Just Walk On By" - the article is here or in 50 Essays. Take a look at the piece and consider especially the idea of the veil/double consciousness. It's highly productive here.
You should also keep moving forward on refining your research topics - more on that next class and next week!
