AP Lit 3G: Uncovering Process, Star Wars Puzzles & Legos

We'll start by solving some Star Wars puzzles, because that's good strong academic thinking.

Actually . . . it is.

We will examine our process of problem solving and use it to fuel a comparison conversation around our own processing habits and needs.  This will lead into our work with our own analytical processes.

We'll use LEGO bricks  to help us along with that work.  (Interesting article about how to refer to LEGO here -- language and words are neat!)  We will use the LEGO bricks to create models of the first three stages in our personal poetry analytical process.  The results in Periods 2B/3B were neat.  I'm looking forward to seeing what we come up with.

Then we'll discuss the two excerpts from Kushner & Pynchon and what we noticed in those two works of fiction.  It will allow us to start looking at differences between our analytical processes around poetry and fiction.  

This weekend: book projects.  Boom.
