AP English III:
It's time to do the big dance, for real. Be on time (7:30 at the Church). Be well rested (remember you can't really study too much). Be well fed (have a nice breakfast). And do all the things!
I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes. 2nd period - I won't see you. 3rd period - I will see you. Take A-lunch, report to class by 12:48. We'll watch some episodes of The Simpsons and talk about satire.
You all have your final essay assignment which we will be working on every day in class from now to the end of the year. The idea is to finish and submit the final essay on the last class of the year. By doing this intensive writing work, we will be ready for the writing goals on the EOC. You should continue to study your vocabulary words from "Rama and Ravana" in battle as well as take care of any missing assignments from your progress report.
Next class we'll start our final few readings of the year which will come from China. First we'll get to know Ancient China through the writing of Confucius - then we'll see modern China through the writing of one of my favorite authors, Ha Jin.
