Thursday 12/8-12/15 playing catch up!

Okay so the past few days we have been focusing on AP argument prompts, Things They Carried and Multiple Choice Practice.

  • We have done 3 different multiple choice practices (see me for copies) (Not graded, only practice)
  • We have read pages 1-58 of The Things They Carried sectioned off as the following:
    • 1-25 (Read, Create 2 Discussion Questions and 2 AP style multiple choice questions (there is a guide to help with this. See me for handout.)
    • 26-36 (Read, Create 2 discussion questions and 2 AP style Multiple choice questions.)
    • 37-58 (Read, Create 2 discussion questions and 2 AP style Multiple choice questions.)
  • All Things They Carried work should have been turned in this week.

  • We have read and created outlines for 3 separate AP Argument Prompts. (see me for handouts)
    • The last one about The Worst Years of Our Lives had a homework assignment attached to it asking you to create both an outline and an introductory paragraph addressing the prompt.

  • In addition to all of this we have done several Lit Presentations however, those scheduled for TUE, WED, THURS, and FRI of this week were pushed to after break.

  • THURSDAY and FRIDAY students chose one of the three prompts to write their in-class essay on. This essay will be graded, returned, and students will be given the opportunity to revise for higher score (one revision only). The second in class Argument essay we will write will not be available for revision.

READ The Things They Carried pages 59-81 and create 2 discussion questions and 2 AP style multiple choice questions. Also, read pages 81-111 and create 2 discussion questions and 2 AP style multiple choice questions. 

After that just relax, recharge, and spend time with your loved ones!
