Students will take midterm exams Friday, December 16 through Tuesday, December 20.
The Junior exam will consist of one essay response that mirrors the research task we’ve been working on the last month. Students will receive a copy of the short story on Monday. They should study the story before the exam, reading and annotating in preparation. At the exam, students will receive a packet of literary criticism excerpts that they will incorporate into their essays. Students will apply skills of citation, quote integration, thesis writing, and paragraph organization. They will incorporate evidence from the story and criticism, analyzing each.
