May 1

JOURNAL TOPIC: ["Maggie May" by Rod Stewart; "You May Be Right" by Billy Joel]

"Hooray, hooray, the first of May..." "May I go to the bathroom?" So many of the most basic words in English have multiple meanings derived from etymologies all but lost in the mists of time. The word May implies spring, permission, and possibility/uncertainty. It's also a trap for casual writers who don't know the difference between may & might? Even pros can get confused.

Today you may write about May, or about your understanding of may, or about anything else you're wondering about as you prepare for the AP exam.

1. Journal
2. Lit terms quiz (61-90)
3. Study/finish writer's conferences

1. Continue AP prep
2. Study for lit terms quiz (91-120) on Friday 5.4
