Focus: Empowering your responses to Question #3 on the A.P. exam
2. Making a concise, student-friendly rubric: In a word, a 9 is..., an 8 is..., a 7 is.... (etc)
3. "Thursday" workshop for your Tuesday writing on The Stranger:
a. Perusing the real 2004 rubric
b. Playing everybody's favorite game....which is the 5, and which is the 7? Examining two sample essays
c. Musical chairs editing for content, organization, and style
1. Bring an electronic or hard copy of your critical review essay to class tomorrow for editing. We will be meeting in the library computer lab tomorrow.
2. Keep reading Beloved (next Socratic is on Thursday). Your reading ticket needs to be centered on specific imagery, but the format is entirely up to you. Feel free to be creative!
