AP ENGLISH LANGUAGE & COMPOSITION

  • All AP-released exam materials (MC tests and FRQs) will be distributed in class; they cannot be posted by anyone other than the College Board.
  • If you have not completed the Logical Fallacies Google Forms Test from early last week, study up on the notes and get busy on the test — PDF notes: Logical Fallacies (PPT) — I’d strongly recommend you study….
  • If you have not turned in 50E: Plato’s “Allegory of the Cave” reading and discussion, get it done! Complete #1, 2, 4 at the bottom of the excerpt, and (from handout) #1-7 QRS and #1-7 multiple choice.
  • (Monday) TEDTalks: Steve Jobs’ 2005 commencement address, “How to Live Before You Die,” at Stanford University, and composer Benjamin Zander’s talk about music and passion — discussion of what these seemingly unrelated talks have in common, how they are different, what we can learn from them.
  • (Wednesday) review last week’s MC test and rhetorical analysis student samples
  • Things we know we need to work on:
    • sentence structure types (simple, compound, complex, compound-complex)
    • types of sentence (declarative, interrogative, imperative, exclamatory)
    • (rhetorical) modes of composition (narration, description, exposition, argument)
    • tone & diction (how they work together)
    • Rhetorical Devices (PPT)  /  Rhetorical Devices (PDF) (where is my “hmmmmm…” emoji?? love y’all, but it sounds like you need to study…)
    • expanded vocabulary words
