Standard: ELAGSE11-12RL1 Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.
Learning Target: I can cite evidence from the text to answer selected response questions.
Opening Session: Write a journal entry considering what we’ve been reading this week with slave narratives and The Souls of Black Folk. These candid depictions of the lives of black Americans have become “classics” of literature. Why do you think these stories are “classics”? What does it mean to be a “classic” and why are they so extensively studied in schools?
Work Session: VOCAB QUIZ!!!!! And Journal Check 🙂
After your vocab quiz, we’re going to take a slight break from AP Essay writing, since you guys wrote a major essay earlier this week, and you’ll be doing AP Exam Multiple Choice questions instead! I have two sets of questions for you, then we’re going to really take our time and read the passages together and go over the questions.
Also, I wanted to take a few minutes to go over the stuff we read yesterday and get your reaction 🙂
Closing Session: Reflection: Write a journal entry reflecting on how you’re feeling for the AP Exam so far. Do you feel prepared? Is what we’re doing in class helpful? What could we do more, what should we do less? Share any feedback you have with me as well!
Assessment: Vocab Quiz, Journal Check, Informal class discussion of Multiple Choice questions
Differentiation: Process (scaffolding)
Homework: Read 20 minutes in your Independent Reading book; Work on your Alternative Book Report (Due Friday, 2/16)
