english III AP class questions
posted by Claire .
So I've signed up for Ap this year. I was wondering, do the teachers expect us to know the meaning of terms such as: grammatical functions, rhetorical appeals, brevity, metonymy, and so on?
We've been given a packet that gives a article we're supposed to analyze and answer questions to. I don't know half the meaning of these questions. I want to do really well, but I feel like I know nothing. Is this just to see where we're at?
I'm sure one of the purposes is to see what kind of background you have in English vocabulary and concepts. It may also be a device to weed out those students who should not be taking a class for college credit.
I suggest you Google those terms you don't know. There's a tremendous amount of information on the internet about these concepts.
Or you may decide that you really should be in a regular English class -- not an advanced placement class.
Okay thank you!
You're welcome, and good luck!
Thanks (: I'll let you know if I survive!
