This Seat's Taken: AP Lit, February 12, 2013

Focus: Strengthening your skills as an interpreter of poetry and a timed writer

1. Announcements!

2. Surprise: A collaborative timed writing

Try to incorporate the three elements mentioned in the prompt  (structure, imagery, and tone) as well as at least ONE sound device (euphony, cacophony, alliteration, rhyme, etc.).  Feel free to use any packets of poetry terms you have lying around.

Prepare for tomorrow's Socratic seminar on Beloved, chapters 13-15.  For your reading ticket, select one paragraph and perform a close reading of it, examining not only imagery and diction but also syntax, sound devices, tone, metaphorical language, and any other elements you find useful.
