This Seat's Taken: AP Lit, November 15, 2012

Focus: Laying the groundwork for your poetry papers and projects

1. Announcements!

2. Viewing projects and papers in small groups (10 min):
  • What do you immediately notice in each example?
  • Upon closer examination, what subtleties do you notice in each example?
  • What seems to be the larger purpose of each example?
  • How is that purpose achieved in each example?
3. Off to the computer lab to develop outlines and rubrics!

HW: Start/continue outlining your poetry projects and papers; finish the reading assignment for Friday (if you haven't yet), which is Chapters 8, 9, and 10 in Invisible Man; for your reading tickets, you can continue with your 10 one-liners, you can rewrite a scene from a different point of view (as we did in class yesterday), or you can create a visual representation of your analysis of these chapters.

Poetry PROJECT Due Dates:
1. Proposal due Tuesday, Nov 27.
2. Rubric due Monday, Dec 3.
3. Projects due Monday, Dec. 10.

Poetry PAPER Due Dates:
1. You are not required to turn in a proposal or a rubric since these have already been laid out for you.  However, you are more than welcome to come in for a conference or to e-mail me for feedback at any stage of the writing process.
2. If you would like the chance to revise your essay, you must turn it in Friday, Dec. 7.
3. If you do not want the chance to revise your essay, you may turn it in as late as Wednesday, Dec.12.
