Hello, my AP Litters! I hope all is well and you're enjoying our heavy new read.
I'm blogging from the Weebly Classic app and it doesn't allow for too much fancy. So let's cut to the homework chase, yes?
Please reply by Monday, 11.17.
The directions have changed: You only need to reply to this thread, not a classmate (though if you chose to, that'd be cool & interesting vis discussion).
Of the first 10 stories in The Things They Carried, which is your "favorite"? (Most thought-provoking, intriguing, intense,entertaining, inspiring, and so on...)
What makes TTTC great literature? How (and where) is it ambiguous, provocative, complex, and personally & emotionally challenging?
I look forward to your thoughts. Read, work, & think hard.
OK AP peeps:
Since we've threaded the needle with point of view, let's continue on with more analysis and connections. Examining POV, narrator, and eventually speaker deepens your Five-S annotations, plus it'll be a great place to begin in a couple of weeks with Slaughterhouse Five. I call that win-win!
Here are the rest of the songs for the activity. After you've listened to and analyzed a few more of these, post a link to a song you know with an interesting point of view. It might be fun to talk to your parents about this one.
List the song title and artist. AND Copy & paste the link to your song OR some representative lyrics into the comments section below.
Tell us what makes the point of view interesting. You should go beyond just identifying the pov. Tell us how the point of view functions in the song and why we, too, might find it interesting.
You DO NOT need to fill in the website category -- leave it blank. Post everything in the comments.
You also DO NOT need to fill in any more of the song analysis chart. We'll let this homework and connection-making suffice.
Do this by Friday -- please & thank you :)
