This Seat's Taken: AP Lit, January 17, 2013

Focus: Analyzing voice in your critical reviews and The Stranger

1. Announcements!

2. Warm-up: Perusing sample a sample critical review essay and determining how to read your book

3. Forming questions for the hat of knowledge and discussing The Stranger, Part 1, Chapters 4-6 with the MMM approach (small groups)

žWith your group, discuss the MMM of each chapter and jot your ideas down in your composition book.

žMoment: Which moments in each chapter make you pause and why?

žMovement: Where does there seem to be movement?  Lack of movement?  Repetition?

žMultiple Meanings: Try to find a pattern among the moments and movements you have discussed.  Right now, your thoughts may largely be taking on the form of questions.

If you find your conversation getting stale, please grab a card from the bucket of knowledge.

HW: Read The Stranger, Part 2 (Chapters 1-3); for your reading ticket, please connect a specific passage back to one of the big questions from Tuesday's green sheet.
