A.P. Lit Is Looking at the Big Picture: March 30, 2015

Focus: What larger themes in your novel can you start to pin down?

1. Warming up: Prompting you to think thematically about you book club novel

a. Read through the list of prompts for Free Response #3, marking the ones that might apply to you book club novel.

b. Narrow down your choices: Please highlight THREE prompts that speak directly to your novel.

c. As a group, brainstorm together how you would respond to each of the three prompts. What would your overarching argument be? What would your 2-3 supporting arguments be? What specific examples (setting, symbols, dialogue, motifs, moments, etc.) would you bring in?

d. Pick one of your documents with the three highlighted prompts to turn in to Ms. Davidson before the end of class. Make sure all of your names are at the top. 

e. I will select one for your Tuesday writing tomorrow.

2. Developing your big question blog posts; complete these before class tomorrow.

Please remember to bring in specific passages, specific symbols, moments, words, etc; the more specific you get, the better the close readings and the more complex the themes.

1. Finish your big question blog; tomorrow will be your Tuesday writing on your book club book.  

2. If you have your own copy of Waiting for Godot, start bringing it to class on Wednesday (we begin waiting on Wednesday).
