Homework for B-Day Students: 8 March

AP English III:

Though I wasn't here to hear everything I was very impressed with the way in which you all worked through the ideas of necropolitics and biopolitics in order to delve into the interesting and important ideas around Tyra, her life, and the lives of transgender people, in general. As you read these pieces, it is important to make connections back to Invisible Man and the ways in which race and sexuality can lead to invisibility.

For tonight, make sure that you finish the questions related to the documentary you watched in class. As you answer the questions, write paragraphs that draw on source material in order to make the point. Explain clearly and effectively. In terms of Invisible Man you have your reading of Chapters 11 and 12 for Friday. Make sure that your blog is also updated.

Lastly, there is your synthesis source pack for Friday as well. Use the template documents available in Google Classroom for this assignment. Remember that your outlines can also be resubmitted at any time. Accompany the resubmission with an explanation of what you have done to improve the piece.

English II:

Wonderful work today with Oedipus the King as well as with the characterization activity to design masks. Remember that if you have work to complete on Google Classroom that you need to log-in and submit those assignments ASAP as they are in the process of being graded.

If you have missed any reading of Oedipus the King - it may be a good idea to catch up on that reading. You can check out a textbook, or you can read the play online at this link. In this online version we have read to line 923/[770]. I don't know why there are two line numbers given.
