We've been getting somewhere this week. We've continued to build classroom culture, "speed-dated" one another about our Slaughterhouse Five findings, and laid on the floor to have giant replicas of our bodies drawn to complete a character analysis map.
I'm gonna call that a pretty solid week in AP Lit. :)
Here are the basics:
For speed dating, one side of the table moved on down the row, and you were tasked with discussing the most important ideas from your Thought Plots. You guys had in depth conversations that made my English teacher heart way happy. Here are a couple of pics:
Next you were tasked with delving deeper into a character from Slaughterhouse Five. It was madness and mad fun, and you came up with some pretty solid character analysis. It was great seeing you guys work together, have a little fun, and dig into the text.
And of course here are a few pics of our mapping:
Next week: Socratic seminar, syntax fix up lesson, and Quarter Exam review.
Let's do it!
Your Lit teacher, Mrs. Hilliard
