AP English: Maurice Sendak (Part 2)
In yesterday's class, we worked on the first two parts of our creative writing project: steps 2 and 3 of our children's book assignment, here. You selected your conflict (step 2) and organized your plot (step 3). Many of you also posted step 4, which was to identify your main characters.
For today, we will begin class by finishing Stephen Colbert's 2012 interview with literary giant Maurice Sendak (here) and I will show you my own copy of I Am a Pole (and So Can You!).
When we are finished, please get with your partners and jump into steps 4 and 5. Step 5 is now the most important: Write a rough draft. Make sure to confine yourself to twenty pages (see the back of your assignment sheet) and let me know if you have any questions. When you are done, please post your answers to steps 4 and 5 in the comments section below.
