English 12 — Wed. May 9 to Fri. May 11

These three days: We are working on collaborative essays in groups of four or five comparing and contrasting two poems.

Period 1: Compare and contrast acceptance in “Cigarettes” by Michael Crummey and “I Invite My Parents to a Dinner” by Chen Chen.

Period 4: Compare and contrast optimism in “Still I Rise” by Maya Angelou and “Imagine the Angels of Bread” by Martín Espada.

Homework: Ensure you have finished your part and help your other group members edit and complete theirs. These essays should be completely finished by the end of class Friday or Sunday night at the latest.
