Wednesday Thursday Friday

A-day finished the Know-It-Alls and received an outline to help prep for Paper 2 on Tuesday. Here are some helpful documents for those who would rather succeed than complain:

Pretty Good Paper 1 Sample
Pretty Good Paper 1 Mnemonics -- study Sunday night to remember what to focus on during Paper 1
Pretty Good Paper 2 Sample (Of course, this student wrote about novels. YOU must write about your Part 3 poets: Marvell, Keats, Yeats, Plath)
Pretty Good Paper 2 Organizer -- study Monday night to better organize your thoughts. Also study your study guides thoroughly and ABOVE ALL!!! reread the poetry.

Let me suggest that David Constantine's "Watching for Dolphins" shares a great deal with Sylvia Plath's "Channel Crossing." We did not even discuss rhyme, but Constantine does use it -- slant rhyme, hard rhyme, feminine rhyme, and sometimes just plain consonance -- but there are sound correspondences that are clearly purposeful though not fixed in position.
