Class of 2015, we are scheduled to have dinner before Prom at Otani at 5:30, so we will take pictures here at school between 5:00 and 5:15 before heading across the street.
AP exams continue this week and MUST be taken at specified times. There are NO make-ups for these, and NO late testing is allowed.
Advanced Placement Art History: Hopefully you are on track! You only have a few assignments left to finish the course, including a final exam which you may need to schedule with your instructor.
Advanced Placement Calculus AB: Please be sure that you are where you need to be in this online class—you still have a final exam for the course. You may want to use Khan Academy to reinforce any concepts you are having trouble with. If you have any tests scheduled, you MUST be ready to take these on time on A days when your class is scheduled with me. It's almost over!
Advanced Placement English Language and Composition: Please be sure that you are where you need to be in this online class as there is a LOT of reading to do! The AP English Language and Composition exam is scheduled for 8:00 AM on Wednesday, May 13th in the Meeting House library.
Advanced Placement Psychology: Please be sure that you are where you need to be in this online class! If you have tests scheduled, you MUST be ready to take these on time on A days when your class is scheduled with me! Don't forget to schedule your final exam for this class, Monday, June 8th at 12:30.
American Literature: Writing Assignment 2 is due on Monday, May 11th! This was moved due to the AP exams last week... This week we will be moving on to the post WWII literature: Since 1945, Contemporary Literature. We have one reading selection and one play for this week:
- Eudora Welty: “Petrified Man” [2323-2334]
- Tennessee Williams: A Streetcar Named Desire [DVD]
Contemporary Fiction: With the AP exams, I have been derailed somewhat with the blog and will drop last week's requirement. I should have the blog up for you this week for The Lovely Bones by Monday night. You need to have read through chapter 10 for the blog on Thursday by midnight. On Monday we will also be discussing the final project for the course, an adaptation of a selection from The Norton Anthology of Short Stories into a picture book or a short film. See the assignment handout for more specific details. This project will be presented in lieu of a final exam for the course on Friday, June 5th at 12:30 PM.
Psychology [online]: Make sure that you stay on track with this class, following the pacing guide, as once you get behind in an online class, it is difficult to get caught up again! If you have tests to take, these MUST be taken on A days when I have you in class!
Shakespeare's Comedies and Poetry: I hope you had enjoyed our trip to Staunton to see Hamlet last week—not a comedy, but there were some pretty funny parts! We will pick up with our reading of The Taming of the Shrew and then watching the two film adaptations—a traditional version with Richard Burton/Elizabeth Taylor and a modernized version, Ten Things I Hate About You. I will have the handout for the assignment for this play [a character alphabet] for you on Tuesday.
World Literature: Multimedia Project 2 is now due on Tuesday, May 12th! We will continue working through our unit Trying to Discern the Thoughts of the Other, with an exploration of “The Golden Age of Japanese Culture” with a selection from
- Murasaki Shikibu's The Tale of Genji [1292-1393].
We will also discuss the final project for this class which will be due in lieu of a final exam.
The final exam schedule with an explanation of the policy concerning workshops during exam week is available for download here and on the sidebar.
This is a B week.
