Tuesday, September 6

Small writers' groups completed their discussion and scoring of sample AP essay, then compiled a list of the common attributes of the best essays and the worst essays.
Distributed official scores, began reporting to the class on the groups' work.

Signed out copies of The Bedford Reader and assigned homework for tonight.


WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 7: Read Chapter 1 through page 15 (the end of Mairs' essay).
Using a response-journal format, record two passages from the essay and respond to it.  Focus on language and/or imagery that provokes, surprises, engages, or puzzles you: be specific about the language/imagery and its effects on you as a reader.
