This Seat's Taken: AP Lit, April 5, 2013

Focus: Discussing the climax and falling action (and possibly resolution) of S-5 and Portrait

1. Announcements!

2. Offering you a list of open questions since the dawn of the A.P. Literature test to help you decipher the open prompt (Question #3) and form your culminating questions

3. Taking ten minutes to wrap up "Dialogue Between Soul and Body" (before you forget it)

4. Book club time!

A few things to consider, perhaps:

a. What was your novel's inciting incident (the incident at the beginning that got everything going)?
b. What do the main characters think they want?
c. What do they really want?
d. How do the characters change (evolve or devolve) throughout the book?  What do the realize, and what helps them come to these realizations?
e. How do the opening pages reveal all of the book's central tensions?
f. How do the final pages "resolve" these tensions?

1. If you are finishing your book club book for Monday, please keep your syllabus relatively brief (15 minutes) so that you will have plenty of time to form your Tuesday writing question.

2. Please make sure that at least one person in your group has a laptop, but the more, the merrier.
