AP Exam Prep

I will spend the next few weeks helping those of you who are taking the AP exam. That doesn’t mean that everyone shouldn’t be encouraged to participate and learn. I just don’t know exactly how we are moving forward until the district puts forth their expectations.

Since the exam will be 1-40 minute writing based on a 500-700 word story/passage, that will be where we will focus our poetic analysis and literary interpretation skills.

My first piece of advice would be to go to Google Classroom tomorrow. I will put up a couple of short stories with some guided notes. Remember that we are looking for the “how” and the “why” as we dig through the texts.

2020 AP Exam Schedule

The AP Lit Exam is scheduled for May 13, at 2:00pm.

The exam will consist of one, 45-minute essay.

Students will be able to take exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. They’ll be able to type and upload their responses or write responses by hand and submit a photo via their cell phones.
For most subjects, the exams will be 45 minutes long, plus an additional 5 minutes for uploading. Students will need to access the online testing system 30 minutes early to get set up.

Frankenstein Progress

Anything you fill out over the next few days is great.

Do the character comparison. Do the parts of the Study Guide you know you can answer. I’m just looking for progress at this point. We will get into a deeper understanding later.

If nothing else during this time #readbook

How to Stay on Top of Things While We Are on Break

3/17 — The template for the Frankenstein Study Guide is on Google Classroom. Start working on it. When finding those “golden lines,” pay attention to the themes and the characterization in the story, not just the plot.

3/16 — Updates will be posted and presented in multiple formats so you all can stay informed with what is going on, and what is going to be expected of you. I will front load you with a bunch of information and activities over the next few days. Don’t get overwhelmed. This is just to test how well things go out, come back, are understood, etc.
