AP Literature and Composition
January 6, 2008
Homework: The typed reflection on your winter break novel is DUE tomorrow.
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.
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.”
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.
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.
