Wouldn't it be great if I gave you an ooey-gooey mushy love poem to commemorate Valentine's Day? Yeah? Well, I'm not. You're getting after a modern day sonnet that closely follows the Shakespearian form, and it probably won't give you any warm fuzzies.
BUT if you're interested, or jones-ing for some love poetry, click here for AP Lit c/o '15's love poem selections. Speaking of last year's class, it might be good for you to check out this post that required them to read, respond, and reply. Just like you'll be doing...
HERE IS YOUR TASK:
Read Sherman Alexie's poem "The Facebook Sonnet."
Then, and this is partly in preparation for Wednesday's #aplitDLD (Digital Day of Learning), you will answer a question and reply to a classmate. I'd like you to be engaged in a conversation about this poem, and I expect you to thoughtfully and appropriately offer your interpretation and analysis.
