APL: U5 AP Q3

This was an in class writing for Q3 (Unit 5). Though there are no rubrics attached with this assignment, my score of 7/9 show sufficient evidence of my growth in unit 5!

 

APL: U4: Novel Lecture (S)

This was one of my favorite projects, in which we gave a lecture to the class on one of the three themes that we wanted to discuss from our novel. My book was “The Help.”

Though I think I did a good job reading and understanding the novel’s content for the lecture, I wish that I had provided more contextual evidence for the class. That would’ve strengthened the point I was trying to deliver during my lesson.

APL: U4: Q1 in-class essay (S)

This was an in-class essay for Question 1!

I think I show significant growth in this in-class writing piece as I used to struggle with writing under time pressure and with pen and paper. But I managed to be able to read and interpret the passage in time while writing in a creative and coherent manner.

APL:U1: Original Poem #2

For this assignment, I created an original poem based on the commonly hidden feelings one can have when turning 18 – legal. It gave me a chance to write about my hidden emotions in a more creative, artistic manner.

COMMENTS:

This will be a lovely remembrance of turning 18, the doubts, the anxiety of who you are and knowing your place in the world. It’s clever and raw and real. Love the final couplet.

 

APL: U2: Short story interpretation (essay)

For this assignment, I interpreted one short story, A Rose for Emily, based on its textual details considering the author’s structure, style, and themes.

COMMENTS:

D1: Eileen, I wish you would have gotten this in on time so that you would have had the opportunity to revise. Do hit future deadlines! What is refreshing here is your well-chosen quotes and how you use them as well as your own personal writing voice. You are attentive to style and theme and point of view (as structure?) What is never clear is what your interpretation is. The paper itself appears to contain 4 different interpretations. See doc.
