Write poetry? Interested in submitting your work?
I’m starting a new tradition of publishing the top student papers for certain assignments here on my blog (with permission from the student, of course). Here’s the first installment. Hats off to Ryan Holland and Mikhail Khrenov. Cracking reads.
Dear former Scholars of AP Lang:
You may still be digesting your gooseberries, but for those of you who noticed that there’s a tripling happening in that story (the gooseberries are what change Ivan, the story of the gooseberries is what may change Burkin, the story of the story of the gooseberries is what may change the reader), here’s the full version of Chekhov’s “Little Trilogy” for your reading pleasure.
You can find all your summer reading information here. Why not start now?
Young Scholars of AP Lang:
I’m alarmed by the assignment completion rate lately, especially the Huck Journal reflections. That assignment, as I said, is graded using the single criterion of genuine reflection (rather than analytical depth, grammatical correctness, etc.). As of now we are two weeks past due date and one week past deadline. I’ve decided to allow half credit for assignments submitted by this weekend (Sunday night). You need not email to let me know you’ve turned it in as I will check again on Monday.
The finish line is in sight. One more big push through this research paper. You have it in you. You just need to find it.
If you need some motivation click here.
Dear Young Scholars:
If you would, please take a moment to break from your
exhausting exhaustive research to fill out this quick survey. It is for a good cause (the editors will be picking students arbitrarily and throwing their entire English class a doughnut party!).
