The presentation from the classes held on 9/20-9/21 is now posted on the course specific page. Please review it, including the slide notes which are a recapitulation of the lecture. I don’t always post my narration, but since this one is somewhat complex (and, I think, critical to an understanding of the work), I want to make sure that you have access to the ideas, regardless of the quality of the notes you took in class. The lecture notes follow the presentation itself, so keep scrolling. The notes include reference points so that you can tell which slides correspond with the explanatory text. Let me know if you have any questions.

As I Lay Dying Reading Quiz re-assessments are today after 9th in room 245. You will have the option of testing section one, p 1-46, or section two, p 47-93. If you cannot make it today, you must re-assess by Friday, 9/23, by appointment.
Here’s something that I might have written about annotations in some possible world. And no, the title of this post is not a
rip-off homage to Raymond Carver’s brilliant collection What We Talk About When We Talk About Love, but rather a rip-off of Haruki Murakami’s mediocre What We Talk About When We Talk About Running, which most certainly is a rip-off homage of the Carver.
Hello young scholars.
All AP Lang class sections now have comments posted on turnitin.com for the initial ekphrasis baseline writing. Please review my annotations and summary remarks. My account will show if you checked in, so please do. If I do not see that each student has completed this 1-2 minute task, I will add an additional formal assignment. Please know that this is not punitive. Rather it is to get you reading my feedback and reflecting on your writing.
Also, please note that a few late transfers have not yet posted their writing. I will not accept any submissions after Wednesday 9/14/16. Additionally, you will need to send me an email note to let me know that you submitted as I have moved on to the next assignment.
And if you are in period 4 or 8, please make sure that you have Poe’s “The Purloined Letter” read for class on Tuesday.
Turnitin.com slots for summer reading are now up.
