A.P. Literature and Awesomeness: October 9, 2014

Focus: How do we find the balance between summary, specific examples, and analysis when responding to Open Response #3?

1. Warming up: Giving you some important information about parent-teacher conferences (click HERE for a copy of the letter distributed in class)

2. Looking over the rubric together

3. Exploring the strengths and weakness of a few of your essays

4. Editing each other's essays

Round 1: Thesis and topic sentences

Round 2: Supporting examples

Round 3: Summary vs. analysis

Round 4: Style

1. Please give the parent-teacher conference letter to your parents/guardians.

2. Independent reading (books must be finished by October 27)

3. If you have a school copy of East of Eden, please turn it in today or tomorrow (unless you're still finishing your big question blog).
