Winter Break Homework


Senior AP students,

Your winter break homework is to read The Awakening and be ready for a reading test on it when you get back.

Second, you need to do the practice exam I gave you in one sitting, in the mandated time constraints:


  • 1 hour: multiple choice
  • 15 min break
  • 2 hours: Write all 3 essays.


The practice exam will only be counted for a completion grade: whether you did it or not. We will go over it in class and look at various example essays, then self-evaluate. You will not receive a grade based on your performance because the purpose of this assignment is for you to get an idea of how the 3 hour time limit feels, so that you can learn to pace yourself.

Besides the one afternoon that will be taken up by that 3 hour block, I hope you have a relaxing and restful break!

Cheers,

Mrs. Poulsen
