American Literature Update

It’s been ten full days since I last updated the blog, and in that time, we finished the book The Things They Carried and had a Fishbowl-style Socratic Seminar based on the content. See below for the resources from the last 10 days:

Today, we also began thinking about the Personal essay, which is our last essay of the year, and is based on the Common Application essay prompts. The idea is that you will be able to use the essays that you write in class in the next few weeks to apply to schools during your senior year.
