    This weekend, use your time to prepare for the AP Exam this Wednesday, May 4th.
    Here are my recommendations:
    1. Read over our Super Duper Q3 Review Guide document to help focus your review of the novels/plays from this year.
    2. Re-read the 3-4 scenes mentioned in our Review Guide (above) that students suggested would be good scenes to review for the exam. This is an important step not to skip! As your read, take notes and jot down many details from the scene. Remember that for the Q3 Essay, the AP Readers are expecting that you'll recall a high level of detail in your body paragraphs (almost bordering on summary but not). Be sure to read the final climax/closing scenes from each novel:
    a. O'Brien's "Lives of the Dead,"
    b. Irving's scene of Owen's death,
    c. Gatsby's death & funeral (maybe even Nick's final meeting with Tom and Daisy where he makes the observation about how careless they are), d. d. Walton and the monster's deaths,
    e. Final "revelation" scene in Earnest.
    3. Finally, use the packet I gave out in class today to do some more practicing of organizing your essays:
    a. Q1 Poetry Essay
    b. Q2 Prose Passage Analysis
    c. Q3 Open Response (thematic idea)
    For each of the essay, here's what I'd suggest: write a thesis, decide what your topic sentence ideas would be, and bullet your evidence. The process of reading the prompt, identifying the prompt focus, writing an essay, and thinking through how you might organize your body paragraphs will be very helpful.
