Homework for the Weekend - 18 May 2017

AP English III

I hope that you enjoyed the reading of Flannery O'Connor's short story today in class. Like I said, I think she's one of the best American authors there is. Other great stories by her include "Everything That Rises Must Converge" and "Good Country People". I'd recommend her for the summer - a good author to take a look at, for sure.

Over the weekend, take it easy and relax. On Monday we have guidance coming in to talk about senior year preparations and then on Wednesday we have our final party. Don't forget to prepare by completing your sheet on your character/author and being ready!

English II

I was very impressed by the work that you all did today in class both in terms of analyzing the elements of "Saboteur" by Ha Jin. Over the weekend you can continue to work on your essays in Google Classroom. Remember that we will only have one more class period devoted to working on the essays in the computer lab.

Furthermore, you have your EOC review sheet. You should be studying the literary devices which you don't know and focusing on shoring up those weaknesses before the exam. We'll do more with the review sheet next week as we prepare for the final exam!
