Recent AP Goings-On

The topic over the last week has been “Education.” We started off watching Ken Robinson’s talk about “changing educational paradigms” (see previous post for video), then read Price’s “I Know Why the Caged Bird Cannot Read” and Baldwin’s “A Talk to Teachers,” which we discussed Monday and Tuesday, respectively.

For Thursday, I’ve asked students to read Sherman Alexie’s “Superman and Me,” and Kyoko Mori’s “School,” also from The Language of Composition. On Friday, we’ll have our first In-Class Essay of the term; for that, you’ll be expected to respond to a prompt using evidence from the six readings in that same book. Those readings can be found in Lang of Comp, from pages 150-163 (including Rockwell’s painting).
