12th Grade: H.W.#76, Due Wednesday, 6/7

NOTHING is due if you have submitted everything that was due up to this point. In case you have missed some assignments in the past, please do not tarry any longer with any piece. Just submit it. Even a 50% is better than a 0%. Whenever you put something on turnitin.com now, make sure you send an email to me along with it, so that I know that I should check turnitin.com. Otherwise, I won’t know.

We will continue our very own Open Mic sessions on Wednesday. You will get one final opportunity to share something about yourself, your experiences at Stuy and this particular class, or anything else. Feel free to bring in some snacks!

The moral of this story is quite clear for you at this time, isn’t it?

10th Grade: H.W.#76, Due Wednesday, 6/7

  1. Same as before! If you have not presented yet, continue work on the project.
  2. If you are done with your Master and Margarita project, begin reflecting on our spring term in Euro Lit (if you would like, you can also think about fall term, but it is not mandatory). Write a reflection paragraph for each unit. What’s memorable, enjoyable, difficult, worth the effort, not worth the effort in each unit? Why would you want next year’s sophomores to read or not to read each unit? Type up your responses. We will share/collect these on Monday, June 12th (and continue sharing them out possibly on June 27th…).

NOTE
Email your project to Ms. Tsai or Dr. Mandler (depending on your class period) if it involves the use of technology the night before you present.

12th Grade: H.W.#74, Due Monday, 6/5

1. Finish reading Kazohinia.
2. Write a one-paragraph reflection in which you discuss what you believe to be the overall message of the novel and how successful the novel is in conveying this message. You may use this opportunity to gather your thoughts on the novel and offer a personal reaction to it.
3. If any rising seniors approach you for advice on the course, please be mindful that your advice matters. A casual “Mandler gives too much homework” could mean the difference (other AP English teachers give just as much homework as I do, by the way. I checked…). It could make the difference between having an AP Psych. and Lit. course at full speed (with two courses) or not…So, feel free to post inspirational messages on Facebook for those who did not put down this course as their first choice for AP English. 🙂

Please begin reflecting on the course. What was really interesting? What was less than interesting? What works of literature or psychology ought to be kept for next year? What works of literature could be cut? Any suggestions for what else to include? Your input is very important. I’d like to have this from you before the course ends.

NOTE
Senior Portraits will be shared beginning Tuesday. I’m looking forward to this culminating experience together with you as your final days at Stuyvesant come and go…

Continue work on your creative project if you still have to go. Again, let us know in advance if you need any technology other than the Smartboard, and send us your project if it is digital. Avoid ICloud.

Have a great weekend!

12th Grade H.W. #73, Due Friday, 6/2

1. Read chapters 16 and 17 (23 pages). This is the culmination of Gulliver’s experiences with the Behins. Keep track of your emotional responses to what you are reading by jotting them down on post-it notes (or in any other way) as you are reading. Evidence of your reading/thinking/reflections will be checked in class. (Yes, I intend to be in class on Friday).
2. How do you evaluate the Hin solution to the Behin question? (Notice how I phrased this question).

NOTE
All senior portraits must be submitted by Friday, 6/2/17.
