You guys did SUCH A GREAT JOB studying syntax, looking for the so-what, and then applying this concept to your own writing.
The most mature and sophisticated AP Lit students can do that. They can look for structure, craft, and meaning, and then take these ideas and apply them to their worn writing. You're well on your way!
Here's a quick rundown of the week's events and handouts:
Syntax Creative Writing Activity
"After I Was Thrown Into the River and Before I Drowned" by Dave Eggers
Timed Writing PowerPoint
