AP Lit:  You have a new Daily Syllabus (also posted on our page) for class activities from Oct. 17 to Nov. 14 (ish).  Mrs. KA and I are working out details to incorporate more instruction for and practice with poetry, especially in our transition from Frankenstein into A Prayer for Owen Meany.  Many other documents for this time frame appear on our page, so please look at those.

World Lit.:  We are focusing on Key Ideas from the foundational text, The Epic of Gilgamesh.  Class activities and discussions will serve you well in the investment we are giving to the ideas from this text.  State Standard Assessments will occur this week and next.  Please look at our class page for the current Daily Syllabus.

Sunday, Oct. 21

World Literature:  I have updated daily lessons for the next month.  On our page, you will find Daily lessons for Oct. 15 to Nov. 15 and many relevant documents.

AP:  I hope your writing for our Quarter 1 paper has gone well.  I’ve heard from a few of you over the weekend, and I’m eager to read your writing!  Papers are due tomorrow, Monday.

Current Updates

World Lit.:  On Monday, you will complete your TPCASST poetry analysis.  Then, your focus should be to complete this reading/note-taking assignment for Wednesday: Read and take notes on textbook Pp. 1-13 and The Epic of Gilgamesh, Pp. 14-28.  There will be a note-check or a quiz.
