AP Lit – (F) R & G passage and reflection

My reflection: Though it was brief, the experience was enjoyable. Hollis and I bounced off of each other’s ideas and it
was a fun collaborative time. When we were acting, I tried to show Rosencrantz’s personality such as
through quick speaking and silly movements.

Targets: CCSS SL.6 – EE; ATL: COLL – EE; SC1.1 – EE; SC1.2 – EE


U5 Style Paper Draft 1

My work: Here

Targets: SC9, SC6, SC15

Reflection: I did not know it was required to submit this first draft to Schoology because it was meant for peer-editing, so I did not think it was necessary to submit it if it was getting reviewed in person.

AP Lit – U4: Novel Discussion Post

My work: 

“Master Harold and the Boys”, by Athol Fugard

Sam: “What’s strange about it?”

Hally: “Little white boy in short trousers and a black man old enough to be his father flying a kite. It’s not every day you see that.”

One of the most prevalent themes in this place is the topic of race. The play puts apartheid in plain sight, which makes it such an interesting piece. This quote reflects the oddity of interracial friendships during the time period and location in which the play is based. It implies that it was extremely rare to see a Caucasian and African-American together doing something that is recreational. Throughout the play, it is clear that Hally and Sam have a deep bond, but due to the status differences between their ethnicities, it is overshadowed. This quote can be seen as the characters being some of the few people to start breaking boundaries and putting themselves out there.

AP Lit – U3: AP Q2 Revision

My work: Here

Targets: SC2 – ME; SC5 – ME; SC8 – AE; SC14 – ME/AE; SC15 – ME

Feedback: “Heather, I can see you are making great effort to step up your professional tone and language. You are achieving that. What is lost, though, is clarity. I believe if you allow yourself to be a bit more forthright – say it like it is – you will have greater success with clarity for your reader. Disconnect between evidence and analysis and thesis still lingers. Future focus: strong thesis. See doc for notes.”
