Tenth Grade:

We will be reading the Theban plays (Oedipus Rex, Antigone, Oedipus at Colonus) through mid September.  We will be looking at tragic heroes, dramatic irony, symbols, and fatal flaws.  We will make Greek theatre masks, storyboards, and write an essay on the plays.

AP Literature:

We are reading various short stories such as: A Good Man is Hard to Find, Good Country People, Hills Like White Elephants, A Rose for Emily, and A Worn Path.  We are looking at the authors' use of diction, images, details, language, and sentence structure. We are taking periodic AP style quizzes as we read. Students are also reading How to Read Literature like a Professor independently.  The book needs to be finished by September 30th.

The AP Literature and Composition exam is on May 4th.

A sample MLA formatted paper is available to you through the following link on the VCS Media Center's page.  This sample paper was provided by Lake Sumter State College.  Please review this prior to submitting any essays. MLA format is a requirement.  

Another wonderful writing resource is the Purdue Online Writing Lab, also known as the Purdue OWL.  I will refer to this site in class often.  Click here to access the site.
