This week was a pretty eventful week with it being homecoming this weekend. Spirit week was festive as usual and AP lit was as interesting as usual. This week we really started getting into our groups and reading a bunch of short stories.
One of the things I really enjoyed this week was listening to the different poems by the poet Ross Gay. In our groups we had to choose three short stories to read and I chose to read The Tell Tale Heart by Edgar Allan Poe, it was a really interesting story and we had to find symbolism in it. Earlier in the week we wrote an "I remember" prompt for our creative writing and then a few days later we went back to that prompt and either added on to it or changed it. Going back to that prompt I picked something that was really personal for me and it made me feel good to be able to write about it in the way I wanted to.
Looking in to the lesson plans for next week it seems pretty busy and it looks like we are going to get into the What is literature project. Overall this week was a pretty good week, I know that next week we are changing the poem the day to a different author but I do think that we should listen to more of Ross Gay and any other poems he has.
