This Seat's Taken: AP Lit, January 14, 2013

Focus: Strengthening your multiple choice skills and assessing your overall performance on the AP Literature test

1. Announcements!  Hand back critical review proposals.

2. Warm-up: Give me your best and your worst multiple choice sections

3. Working through the toughest multiple choice sections

4. Return Invisible Man timed essays and the essays you gave to me on Friday; calculate your actual AP score on this test.

Applause-worthy thesis statements from Invisible Man:

His self interest and ignorance is reflected in his interaction with the few female characters throughout the book with whom he falls to carnal and savage behavior--stereotypes he has resented and fought to disprove his whole life.  (Margot)

This echoing of events show the narrator's continual cycle of allowing himself to be led yet not seeing the leadership's ultimate plan. (Nate)

In the repetition of thematic ideas in symbols such as the false coins, the defacing "letters of recommendation," and the ideals of the Brotherhood, Ellison guides the narrator into invisibility. (Kyle)

1. Start reading your critical review book (the essay is due in less than a month).
2. Start reading The Stranger; our first Socratic seminar will take place this Wednesday, and it will cover Part 1 (Chapters 1-3).
3. Check out the big dates for AP Literature on the Google calendar.
