A.P. Literature Is Choosing the Right Answer: November 11, 2014

Focus: How can we improve our multiple choice skills?

1. Explaining today:  Hello, class!  Henry is sick, so I won't have the pleasure of joining you today.  Please enjoy the multiple choice questions I've selected especially for you today.

Feel free to mark up the tests (and be sure to hold onto them until we can discuss them further), but record your official answers on the scantron sheets.  Do your best, but try not to worry about your score too much.  In the words of Taylor Swift, shake it off.

You only need to do questions 1-40; you do not need to read the Faulkner piece at the end (unless you're dying to).

2. Wrapping up: In the last 10-15 minutes of class, please grab a partner and work through the questions.  When you and your partner disagree on a questions, take the time to talk it out until you agree on one (feel free to change your answer on the actual scantron).

3. Turning in your scantrons (I'll let you know how you did)

Please read Chapters 1, 2 and 3 in Invisible Man for tomorrow; read them carefully and slowly because your understanding of the rest of the novel will rest heavily on these first chapters.  Form at least ten good questions using the method from today and/or the Socratic questions sheets given out in class.
