Sinai will resume sessions on Wednesday January 28th on a Tuesday schedule. In other words: all exams originally scheduled for Tuesday will be administered on Wednesday. As such, the Wednesday tests will be given on Thursday, and Thursday tests will be given on FRIDAY.
Your midterm format has been changed. Please note that you will still need to know whatever we have covered since September, but you will refer to the texts we have read, not a new text selected for the test. As previously announced, you will need to identify themes, major plot elements, imagery, syntax, diction, tone, setting, how characters respond to and evolve because of challenges, and the function of points of view. You will also need to know the kinds of figurative language the authors employed, and why.
Refresh your memory of the texts we read this semester. Review your class notes and the kinds of questions that were asked on the handouts. Remember why certain texts are considered literature and not merely writing. Finally, be prepared to write about the connections you found between the texts and your life.
