AP Lit 3G: Lot Jotting & Google+ & An Experiment

When you walk in, I will ask you all to take five minutes & write an essay about whether or not I should wear a tie to school.  Have fun with it.  (It's for my daughter. I'll explain.)

Then we will do the Lot Jot question generating activity described here.

After lunch, we are trying an experiment.

There will be three zones.

A book discussion zone.

A synthesis solo work zone.

A synthesis group work zone.

I will work my way through all three, as you will choose the zone that most suits your needs.  You can also move fluidly from zone to zone as your needs dictate.

This is an effort to maximize the class time for you, while still affording a structure in the room.

Write: Synthesis Essay 1st Submission Draft Due Next Class!  Thursday!

Blog: 3+ entries for Friday, 9/27
Assigned Creative Blog Post:  Mrs. Dalloway employs color in meaningful, powerful ways.  Perhaps you have noticed this, perhaps  you have not.  (Pay particular attention to flowers, foods, skies, clothing and faces.) 

Use Colourlovers.com  to create a custom palette of at least three colors relating to meaning in Mrs. Dalloway.  You will need to name the palette and each color within it.  Be certain to choose purposeful names and push your self to go beyond the concrete.  (Concrete:  "blue sky" because the sky was blue.)

Share your palette on your blog w/ explanations of your choices.

Added Challenge: Create a piece of digital art employing the color palette in a way congruent to Virginia Woolf.
