RE: Saturday AP Practice Test
For those coming to the practice test tomorrow, remember that we are using the 2008 multiple choice questions, so don't do those tonight! Also, you may want to decide tonight which essay questions you want to use. You need one of each type, and there are several in both the posted Q1, Q2, and Q3 sets, as well as at the end of the 2008 exam. You don't need to bring them tomorrow, as I will have copies of everything. See you tomorrow from 8 - 12 at room B-9! I will bring bagels, fruit, OJ, and water.
FYI Senior Project Preliminary Research Checklist Items
The following items will be on a checklist that I will give you tomorrow, to be turned in with your cards and worksheet answers:

IMPORTANT: Preliminary Research Deadline Extension
For various reasons, I'm extending the deadline for the worksheet and the first set of cards until the end of the period on Tuesday, 4/7. Bring sources and materials to work with on Monday and Tuesday. If you are done, bring materials to work on the Beowulf (Pd 2) or ekphrasis (AP Lit) essay. This change does not push back other senior project deadlines. Also, and VERY IMPORTANT, find an appropriately-sized binder clip for your cards. Finally, please spread the word about this announcement, as I do not know if all of you will see this. Happy hunting in your ongoing research!
Here at CSUN
1:04 pm. I'm here at the CSUN library, if anyone needs help with anything! Ground floor, middle, by windows!
CSUN Library
Confirming that I'll be at the CSUN library tomorrow, Wednesday, April 1st, around 12:30, to help with senior projects. If people are there and need me, I'll stay awhile. If not, I'll be returning to spring break after an hour or so.

Here is the prompt for the in-class essay we did on Friday. If you were absent, please complete it this weekend and turn it in on Monday, 10/6. Thank you!

"Reflect carefully upon your notes and the play 'The Rising of the Moon.' Then, in a well written essay, explain how playwright Isabella Augusta Persse employs elements of stagecraft or stage direction—blocking, gesture, props, etc.—to develop character, plot, or theme in her one-act play. (Restrict yourself to 50 min to do this assignment.)"
