Greetings! I hope you've enjoyed your TV viewing (or TV binging) experience. I'm excited to see which series you chose and what you thought of it. Soon you'll be gettin' cozy with your required reading and the post-apocalyptic world of Cormac McCarthy.
But before you're off on The Road, let's get after Part 1 of your assignment, which is a bit of "class discussion" over on our AP Lit class discussion board. In order to participate, you'll want to sign up as a member of the forum. You'll be able to sign up through social media or your email.
IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS CREATING AN ACCOUNT, YOU MUST CONTACT ME.
Please follow the directions to the assignment on the AP Literature Discuss page Remember, the discussion opens on June 29 and closes July 3. That ought to give you plenty of time to think and talk.
Alright: I think that's it. Enjoy!
Oh, PS. You can always, always, always feel free to ask questions by commenting on this blog. Just FYI everything in the comments section requires approval from me. :)
Hi all! You have three things to do this summer: 1 - watch TV; 2 - read The Road by Cormac McCarthy; 3 - read a book you choose. Of course it's a tiny bit more involved than that, as explained in your summer reading task sheet.
But think about this for me, will ya'? Why is the clip below so summoning? What makes it beautiful or moving or lasting?
Kind of interesting when you consider how cheesy or played this scene could come off. So: why?
