AP Lit 3G: A Bit of a Wonky Day of Lots of Ends of Things

Today started with our MUGS Apostrophes Quiz 1 on

Then we made sure our projects were ready to go for the installation.  Everyone who wants their pieces on display should put them on the black cart and complete the curator's note document on the Google Drive.  There's no obligation -- I just think these are all well worth sharing.

I'll be installing between 9 a.m. and 12 p.m. on Monday if you would like to come along and help.

After that we dug into Joyce's "Eveline," using the Literary 3x3 strategy to further illuminate the short story.  We marked up the text of the story while looking at the 3x3s, identifying the evidence that brought us to our conclusions.

We did not get to Hamlet today -- disappointing. Must rectify after our test prep on Monday.

Tuesday, during class, practice test.  Does not count in the gradebook.  Being assessed only for baseline & feedback data.  One multiple choice item (reading and 7 or 8 questions) and one writing prompt (reading and responding) in 45 minutes.  

Blog: 3+ posts
Req'd Post: Create a Literary 3x3 for Joyce's "Eveline" and for Houseman's "To an Athlete Dying Young."  Choose one of the those two 3x3s and turn it into a thesis statement & map your thinking about an essay.  Those maps can be visual! Or verbal!   Just get 'em up on your blog.
