AP English Language and Composition – Ms. Drohan and Mr. Plyler

Due: September 6th-9th, 2022

Book: Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel

“An audacious, darkly glittering novel set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse—the spellbinding story of a Hollywood star, his would-be savior, and a nomadic group of actors roaming the scattered outposts of the Great Lakes region, risking everything for art and humanity.”

As you read, keep track of the following:

1. Plot

· What are the actions or events of the narrative? List major and minor events.

· How does the passage of time function in the plot? Chronological? Is there foreshadowing? Are there flashbacks? List them.

· Identify the climax.

· Identify all conflicts (man vs. man, man vs. himself, man vs. nature, man vs. society). Be specific!

2. Character

· Create a list of major and minor characters followed by a description.

3. Setting

· Identify the setting(s) (time, place, atmosphere).

4. Images and Symbols

· What images are used in this work?

· Are the images literal or figurative?

· Are there repeated images? List them.

· What symbols are used in this work?

5. Themes

· Create a list of thematic connections that are addressed in the novel.


AP Literature and Composition - Ms. Newman

 

Students should read the play A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry.

Students should take notes on plot, characterization, setting, and theme to supplement their understanding of the work. These notes will be used throughout discussions in class, but will not be submitted for a grade.
