This Seat's Taken: AP Lit, November 28, 2012

Focus: Close reading prose

1. Announcements!

2. Warm-up: Applause-worthy close readings (performed by you). Click here to see them.

3. Return essays and discuss revisions:

  • Focus on one portion only (a single paragraph, or even a single close reading).
  • Staple it to your original essay with my comments.
  • Due Friday, Dec. 7.

4. Practicing prose analysis: Ellison's catalogs and returning to a multiple choice passage from ages hence

HW: Complete your Invisible Man reading assignment by Friday; for your reading ticket, find one passage that serves as a variation of an earlier scene and type the following:
  • The original scene
  • The variation
  • A one-paragraph analysis of how the second scene is a variation of the first and Ellison's possible purpose in offering this variation.  Feel free to ask questions, too.
