AP Lit 3G: Hamlet & Literary 3x3 & Thesis Statements & Poetry as Design!

Today were supposed to start with getting up and running and the first lesson on there on apostrophes.  Quiz on Thursday.  We didn't get there in class.  It's very easy to set up.  

We'll didn't ripshod over HamletAct II, scene 2.  We saved it because we had all of our poetry as design coolness to share.  Such as these . . .

Inspired by her own poem

Inspired by Mary Lambert

Inspired by Sarah Kay

Inspired by Wilfred Owen

Inspired by her own poem

 (Or at least, part of it. We have a tendency to get carried away on the Hamlet and we have other things to do!)

Then, we'll return to our Literary 3x3s for "Araby" and use them to shape thesis statements & essay maps.  (The results of our work were supposed posted here for perusal but I got caught so up in making thesis statements that I forgot to take pictures.  So . . . here's one I took of my cards afterward.)

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.
