AP Lit: Heart of Darkness and.....Dr. Seuss???

Yup! You read it correctly. Today, much like we did with Frankenstein, we discussed the overall tone of Heart of Darkness (not an easy feat I might add). After that we took on an interesting challenge. Write a short story, scene, description, etc in the rhyming style of Dr Seuss, but with the tone on Heart of Darkness

On a side note, we're going to start a collaborative project with another class in Hawaii next week. Get pumped!

Blog: 3+ Posts
Req'd Post:  Take one line from a 3x3 either you or a classmate wrote and turn it into a poem. **The poem does not have to be about Heart of Darkness**
Due: Friday, Apr 4

Reading:  Have all of True Grit read for class next week. You'll need it for our activity with Hawaii!
Due: Mon. Apr. 7 (3G) / Tue. Apr. 8 (2B/3B)

Over the weekend you should also create your visual 3x3 poem and write a poem to go with it. As always, if there are any questions make sure to send an email!

Just a reminder. This week's blog posts will go on 4th quarter. If you have blogs that you've posted late please email either Mr. Ryder or Miss Haskell to make sure they're graded before the quarter closes this friday!
