Today we made more progress on our Benchmark exams and then began the process of researching or working on our Latin American Literature projects. Next class we'll begin our study of Gabriel Garcia Marquez; one of my personal favorite authors.
AP English III:
We went over a cavalcade of information today on how to and where to do your research for your synthesis assignments. I'll read through your topics this week and aim to get them back to you by Friday. For next class, make sure that you have a copy of Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison. If you don't have your own copy then we will have copies for you to check out. We'll start reading the book together in class on Wednesday.
Additionally, now that you've made some progress with your research topics, keep moving forward. You should find two or three additional sources tonight and start moving forward on developing your topics as well as your argument. The more you can do now, the better!
