(please remember to date your do now entries)

In what ways has Catherine truly grown up in the chapters read last night? What events provoke these changes?

chapters 27 28
Chapters 27 & 28

As we read chapter 27 & 28 focus on –

  • the circumstances surrounding Catherine’s impromptu departure from Northanger Abbey.
  • how Eleanor reacts to her father’s request?
so what is the long comp
So What is the Long Comp?

“The LongComp” is an abbreviated description

of “the Long Composition”-it is the very first task

you will complete on the MCAS (March 22!) and

it is probably the most challenging part of the

exam, since you will not know the exact nature of

the question you will be asked.

The good news? There is only one LongComp, so

once you finish it, one of the most challenging

portions of the test will be behind you.

how is this different than an orq
Long CompHow is this different than an ORQ?

ORQ

  • Several ORQs (2 each session)
  • The ORQs are based on an

article you will have just

read.

  • You have all the resources you need to write an ORQ in front of you.
  • ORQs will need specific

quotations and descriptive

details as evidence

  • ORQs are 1 paragraph—typically 6-13 sentences
  • ONE LongComp
  • The LongComp is based on a text of your choice, within reason.
  • The Long Comp is from memory of a text—you will not have the evidence in front of you.
  • You may paraphrase evidence for the LongComp
  • LongComps are 5 paragraphs in length
can i pre determine the long comp prompt
Can I pre-determine the Long Comp prompt?

Though you won’t know what the Long Comp is about

until you sit down to take the test, it is typically about a

very broad topic and traditionally focuses on change:

Identify the dreams of a character and how they are important to the story

Identify a character who has a conflict with others and why it is important

*Identify a character who changes and why they change.

How can journeys affect characters for better or worse?

Why is a friendship between characters important?

What makes someone heroic?

how can i prepare
How can I prepare?

You will need 3 paraphrased or summarized pieces of evidence from your chosen text. Remember, during the exam, you won’t have the text in front of you, so we will have to practice summarizing/paraphrasing applicable evidence now.

You will need to understand the correct paragraphing and formatting of the essay.

You will also need correct spelling, grammar, and formality. Don’t forget to PROOFREAD!
