AP Lang Updates

Hello Young Scholars:

As discussed in class, I made a slight miscalculation insofar as I totally lunched on counselor visits (3/15-3/16) when doing my planning for this unit. As it turns out, I only have to make a slight modification to the schedule. The reading of the core text (Passing by Nella Larsen) will proceed as scheduled. I will make some changes to the classes that follow, moving the shorter, paired texts and changing the pacing of the agenda when we meet. Please make sure that you are keeping up with the readings and that you come to class prepared to engage in critical dialogue (read: you have your dialectical journals with you, specific text at your finger tips for scrutinous interrogation).

Like, Really Good Essays…

I hope that you all take the time to appreciate these. (I typically post the best one or two, but this time there were six worthy! A record!) All are posted with the authors’ express permissions.

Gatsby Twitter Beef

Aye. Here are the directions. You may begin beefing as soon as you’ve read the first chapter.

Also, you must indicate in your name what period you belong to. You should add your class period to your @name. If you forgot to do this, you can always just change your name (e.g. Nick Carraway pd3).
