Now that we have completed the marking period, it is time to reflect on your performance as a student in AP English Literature. For this assignment, you will need to review the information in your class portfolio in addition to the writing assignments you have submitted to Edmodo. Your reflection should be thoughtfully written, approximately one solid paragraph per section. Be sure to include all three areas in your review.
First, organize your portfolio. It should include the following items:
–>AP Practice Items: timed writings, multiple choice practice
–>Diagnostic Items (Literary Terms, grammar, etc.)
–>Major Works Data Sheets for all works – these will become the backbone of your study guide for the AP exam in May.
Other papers may be discarded or filed.
Now, write your reflection. Consider your completed work, your success on out-of-class items, your participation in class, and your overall work habits (homework, planning, paying attention, etc.) as you complete your reflection.
+ PLUS – In what areas have you succeeded? What are you doing that is working well for you? What kinds of assignments or activities have been the most positive for you and why? Where are you having the most success as a student of AP Literature?
– MINUS – In what areas have you struggled? What did not turn out the way you planned? Do you have habits in or out of class that affect the quality of your work and participation in class?
Δ CHANGE – What do you plan to change or do differently to achieve better results in the coming marking period? What would you like to improve the most over the next nine weeks?
Submit your completed reflection to the blue box. You may return your folder to your class box.
