Dragon Notes Summative

Attached below is the rubric for my AP Literature Dragon Notes video project for the short story You’re Ugly Too by Lorrie Moore. In this project, I collaborated with Michaela McCoy and Lydia Harbor who helped me interpret the piece of literature as well as create the video.

Further reference for the preperation behind this project is in this google document which has our brainstorming picture and final script. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fXC8x8Dd4l1JG5O8HO1AH1ksfMM2PbFJpNhqpWQdydw/edit?usp=sharing

Here are my personal notes while reading the book:

  • Zoe does not seem professional at all
    • i’ve never seen/heard a teacher do what she does
  • interesting use of italicised words to show the comments about her teaching
  • Evan seems to be the foil?
    • complete opposite of zoe
  • very sarcastic and makes uncomfortable comments
  • has a sense of humor that her students don’t understand
  • weird emphasis on Heidi, does she want to be one?
  • interesting choice of men…
    • all of her boyfriends were weird
  • evan trying to set zoe up?
  • why is she joking about her sickness? why is she prioritising her trip over her health?
  • why does she care so much about a single strand of facial hair? reflection of her self image?
  • she and Earl do not seem to have any chemistry at all
