A.P. Lit Is Back, Baby: January 6, 2015

Focus: How can we ease gently back into English academia?

1. Warming up with 3GT

2. Offering you a glimpse of second semester: Books, grades, writing, options, big dates, good stuff.

3. Diving into the most fun of the literary essays: The critical review

4. Handing over the poetic reigns to you by inviting you to compile your favorite poems:

  • With a partner, please compile a collection of 10-12 of your favorite poems.  No little kid poems, please. 
  • You can either select the poems together, or each of you can do 5-6.
  • Include the poem's title and author.
  • Give your poetry packet a title, and make sure your names are on it.

5. If time allows, filling out a short Google form for contact information

1. If we didn't get to #5 on the agenda above, please do so before class tomorrow.

2. Signed class policies/syllabus due Thursday.

3. Finish your poetry packet and Google share it with me (or e-mail it) by Friday.

4. Finish your critical review proposal by Friday; spend a little time at Tattered Cover checking out the new hardback and new paperback fiction shelves.  Have a Big Train chai.
