February 10

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: If you can remember it from sophomore year, you can whistle the "Colonel Bogey March" from The Bridge on the River Kwai. If you actually do this I hope everyone with a phone will video and email to me. The more the better.]

(This is another updated AP essay prompt, so please take a moment, consult your materials, and answer this as though you were setting up the essay.) Define the narrator’s attitude toward characters through imagery, diction, narrative structure, and choice of detail.

1. Journal
2. Finish LALA'ing: by the end of the period each member of the group should be satisfied that each of the other members somehow helped extend the group's understanding. If you see anyone who didn't, bug that person with questions until you're sure she knows what she's doing.

1. Finish all LALA work-- I may ask to see notes on Tuesday, and we'll have lots to talk about
2. Review three of your peers' BQ introductions (if you don't already have their URLs consult the "Member Blogs" page). Open a new tab and conduct your own research on the topic. Find five credible, compelling resources that you think would add to their paper. Explain why (2-3 sentences each). Post the annotated bibliography as a comment to your peer's BQ Introduction post.
3. When you receive the comment to your BQ introduction post, review it and check each citation. Evaluate its quality and determine whether or not you will include it in your paper. Write a thank you note to the colleague who sent it. In your thank you note tell your colleague whether you included each citation and why/why not (2-3 sentences each).
