I collected independent novels at the start of class to check annotation in the first fourth. Then we finally got back around to the excerpt from The Autobiography of Malcolm X from last week. We discussed the rhetorical situation, appeals, and rhetorical style devices in this text. After finishing this, we began our first practice with the AP Lang exam’s multiple-choice section. I reviewed strategies for success on the section of the exam, then students began reading our first practice passage. We will continue working with this passage and answering multiple-choice questions next week. Homework: get started on the second fourth of your independent novel, which I will check next Wednesday.
