Reading and Questions for AP Lit week of Oct 2nd, 2013

For this week:
–you should keep reading and be ready to discuss Old School by Tobias Wolff, maybe be at least 1/2 finished, if not more.

–I tried to find an online copy of William Faulkner’s short story Burning House with no luck (feel free to look), and it would be fun to read it since it is mentioned in Old School, so how about we look at the library and see if we can find a copy. In the meantime, please read the short story Most Dangerous Game, which is in your Perrine book.

–I found this video made by some AP English students who tried to translate the story into film:

There is a third part as well, just look on the page for the link. Some questions? What did they get right? What did they get wrong? Did they copy the tone of the story perfectly? How did Connell himself create such a suspenseful tone?
– no other Perrine’s Literature reading this week
