  • 1. September 22, 2011Dear Students-I have to take my older son to some doctors’ appointments today, so I cannot be with you. I amexpecting excellent, mature behavior with a positive report from Ms. Brown, our guest teacher. Iam counting on you. Do not let me down. Remember, NO CELLPHONES, NO HATS and NO EARPHONES. If you have late work, please place it in the box. Thanks.See you on Tuesday.Love, Ms. Aughey (404) 545-9609 (for late work)Second Block- AP Language- You may do these activities in any order. Please reserve the classcomputers for the students who need them.1. Please carefully read the article ‘Why I Wrote the Crucible” by Arthur Miller. You are to take marginal notes and do selective underlining (highlighting). I prefer underlining because on the AP Language test, you will not be able to use a highlighter. You should underline about 10% of the text. You are looking for the author’s purpose, Miller’s message. You are noting rhetorical strategies that he is using to make his point. You are looking for logical, ethical and emotional appeals he is making to you, the reader, so you will connect with him. This is a masterful piece of writing. Below is an example from my notes. Read it in small groups. It is fascinating but rather long. I will check your notes on Tuesday, September 27.2. Take an orange textbook off the shelf and access the play on pages 1124-1233. Work on your Little Book. Here are the pages for you: Page 1- Diction, Page 2- Imagery, Page 3- Details- Characters, Page 4- Details- Setting, Page 5- Details- Plot, Page 6- Language, Page 7- Syntax, Page 8- Memorable Quotes.3.
