So far I have collaborated with the members of my group and we have pitched a lot of ideas for the college blog. We have decided that each student participating in this will maintain there own page on a blog that is specific to the college they will be attending next year. In the next two weeks we need to talk to other students and make sure we aren't doing the same thing as another group. If this is the case, we should come together and share our ideas in order to make the best college blog possible. This work will benefit a lot of students below our class that will be considering colleges in their upcoming senior year. We can give them information that we wish we had known.

My classmates and I plan to make a blog that will inform other students on college information. There will be a home page that consists of general info. Then we will add tabs that are specific to each school. We will individually update the tab that includes our college and everyone will contribute to the homepage. The goal of this is to give important or interesting college info to students.

Today I went to the "member blogs" page and review other students literature analysis to educate myself on books I haven't read. This will give me an advantage for the AP test. I also reviewed the lit terms and I'm hoping to do better on this next lit terms test.

Today I looked over my essay on Macbeth and thought about how I should've written the essay to score higher on the AP grading rubric. I ran out of time so I will post my conclusion to my blog tomorrow. I feel pretty confident with my knowledge of Macbeth and I would feel comfortable responding to another AP essay question with this work of literature. I also looked over the AP lit terms and plan to study those a lot more since my last two scores on the tests where pretty disappointing.

I chose to start my AP study process with one of the practice tests on the Exam Practice and Reference page. I started the practice exam by reading a passage then answering about 15 questions on it. Despite the questions being in depth and difficult, I did pretty well. I only chose three of the wrong answers on that section. Next I read a poem and answered about ten questions in response to the poem. I felt more confident with my knowledge of this poem than I had with the previous passage. Ironically I did worse on this section, scoring only a 5 out of the 10 questions.

I will be taking the in-class AP test equivalent, and I need to start my studying immediately. I plan to study the AP terms and do well on the terms tests we are taking. I also want to look at other students literature analysis s and familiarize myself with books I haven't read. I need to do well on the practice tests as well.
