AP Literature and Composition

January 6, 2008

Ms. Cares


Agenda

Agenda:

  • My thoughts on where we go from here.

  • Novel Crib Sheets - Instructions and complete in your small groups.

    Homework: The typed reflection on your winter break novel is DUE tomorrow.


My thoughts on your thoughts

My thoughts on your thoughts:

  • More specific AP test prep is coming your way.

  • More novels and plays are coming your way - we will make a greater effort to act out parts of the upcoming plays. Later this week, we will begin Hamlet, which will include reading in and out of class.

  • More time for reflecting and letting different ideas settle in - I agree and will work to honor this!


The crib sheet

The Crib Sheet

From here until the AP exam in May, we will use this to help organize our ideas on the texts that we read and on the ones that we’ve read.

We will complete crib sheets for the novels that we read last semester, and you will complete them for novels that you’ve read in previous years, too.

The goal is to organize your ideas on any given text in a way that will allow you to review the novel prior to the AP exam.


For each crib sheet you will include

For each “crib sheet,” you will include:

Genre - play or novel? Be more specific when possible, i.e. tragedy, epistolary novel, satire.

Setting - Include the place and time whenever possible. If a text takes place in multiple places or time periods, note this.

Major Characters - List the characters that are most central to the text’s actions or themes. Also provide a quick detail that will help you to remember not just the plot involving the character but also the “big ideas.”


For each crib sheet you will include1

For each “crib sheet,” you will include:

Major Themes - Provide a list of as many major ideas or themes as possible. Because you will be asked to write about big ideas such as guilt, personal crises, family relationships and so on, you want to brainstorm a list of potential pertinent details.

Noteworthy Language - What sticks out in terms of diction? Syntax? The use of literary devices including metaphor, simile, foreshadowing, dramatic irony, symbolism, etc.


Winter break novel crib sheet

Winter Break Novel Crib Sheet

With the help of those people who read the same novel as you, create a crib sheet for the novel that you read over the break. You will turn these into me at the end of class, and I will give them back to you tomorrow.

If you finish early, you should begin creating your own crib sheet for Hamlet.
