AP LIT: After a long evening of hunkering down I was able to turn around those practice AP essays pretty quickly. Grades have been posted to gradebook (remember that the scores for this one will be formative and doubled). Top score on this particular exercise will be 18 points. I am really hoping that the guidance meeting doesn't take too long on Thursday so I will have time to review the material with you. Thursday's lesson is all about happiness, so be happy that you get to read a great short story tonight and we can discuss it on Thursday. Honors: I'm really glad you've all be so receptive to the brief writing conversations that we've had so far. Please begin to brainstorm for your Poetry and college essays and we will get to work on Friday. If you would like me to review any material before then just send an email over and I'll take a look ASAP. By the way, the poems I've seen so far have been great! Keep it up everyone and if you have any questions or concerns be sure to email me or stop by and we can discuss. Stelzner
