AP Lang: Incidents in the Life of a Slave Girl

Standard: ELAGSE11-12RL3 Analyze the impact of the author’s choices regarding how to develop and relate elements of a story or drama (e.g., where a story is set, how the action is ordered, how the characters are introduced and developed).

Opening Session: Write a journal entry in which you reflect on The Souls of Black Folk so far. Consider the life experiences of Du Bois and how they’ve shaped his view of the world, and consider the political and social reflections Du Bois does in the book. Do you agree with what he says? Disagree? Why? What strikes you as memorable and why?
