AP Lit Blogging of Text (last Nine Weeks)

Page history last edited by Jayson Yeagley 12 years, 10 months ago

You have one blog due per week each Thursday (by Midnight).  You must number the blog with the following numbers each week.  You must label it like this AP LIT BLOG #1 Due: April 7th.  This is a place for you to show off your skills of what you notice and the effect of what you notice.  You must do the following....


1. You must explain one aspect of the reading such as choices being made by the author on plot points or character development or anything else.

2. You must include one of each sentence type below in order to practice sentence types and variety.  There are a total of 6 types and again...you need to use one of each.  YOU MUST COLOR CODE THEM WITH THE FOLLOW COLORS TOO!


1.     Simple – one independent clause

The singer bowed to her adoring audience.


2.     Compound – contains two independent clauses joined by a coordinating conjunction or by a semicolon.

The singer bowed to the audience, but she sang no encores.


3.     Complex – an independent clause and one or more subordinate clause.

Because the singer was tired, she went straight to bed after the concert.


4.     Compound-complex – contains two or more independent clauses and one or more subordinate clauses.

The singer bowed while the audience applauded, but she sand no encores.


5.     Loose or Cumulative – makes complete sense if brought to a close before the actual ending. The modifying phrase in the sentence could be eliminated while maintaining the meaning of the sentence.

We reached Edmonton that morning after a turbulent flight and some exciting experiences, tired but exhilarated, full of stories to tell our friends and neighbors.


6.     Periodic – makes sense fully only when the end of the sentence is reached.

That morning, after a turbulent flight and some exciting experience, we reached Edmonton.
