Also, read the following texts by Henry David Thoreau:
Read three excerpt from Walden, including "The Bean-Field," "Higher Laws," and "Conclusion." For these readings complete annotations and notes - remember that annotations should look at content and structure. Therefore, there should be notes concerning theme, meaning, transcendentalist principals, literary devices and their purpose, etc. Practicing this type of detailed annotations and notes will help you become a better and quicker reader, ultimately helping you on the timed AP style assessments. The homework grade will be based on the quality of your annotations and their associated notes. The three readings can be accessed below.
