My AP Literature students travel through time and different cultures in the pieces that we read. They explore their grasp of language to analyze complicated pieces of literature and reach the core of the author's intent.
Even though the content can be challenging, they never give up and approach each new challenge with enthusiasm and spirit.
My AP Literature students are intuitive readers, prolific writers, and careful thinkers on the cusp of adulthood. Caring, outgoing, and civic-minded, these mostly middle class bright young men and women strive to make a difference in the world.
My AP Literature students will choose a quote from a literary piece that inspires them and will inspire other students at our high school. Using the requested paint pens, gel paints, and oil-based markers, each student will paint a rock with his/her chosen inspirational literary message, and we will place them throughout the school in order to motivate and lift the spirits of the faculty and student body. We also will invite other members of the Class of 2018 to join us in making a positive mark before they graduate as well. We plan to document the journey on video, with each student displaying his or her rock and explaining the significance of the selected message. We will post our video on our online newspaper before the end of the school year.
Literature and the intriguing characters who live within the pages of cherished books DO have the power to inspire, and sometimes, the smallest message has the greatest impact.
We seek to inspire our school community with our project.
