Byrd/Second Semester Final Study Guide Hamlet: There will be a portion of the exam dedicated to Hamlet. MLA formatting: You will be given three types of information pages (book w/one author, article from JSTOR, and an essay from an anthology). You will need to create a works cited page. Academic Interpretive Lenses: You will need to fill in the names of the A.I.L. next to their descriptions. Study the sheet I gave you at the beginning of the year. Oral Exam: (Last Week of Class) To prepare for the oral exam, type up your answer to the following question: What have you learned (from at least three) of the characters we have encountered in the texts for this class? Please relate your response to the essential question (What is the role of the hero in a hostile society?). For example, in what ways do you seek to be heroic? What are some of the faults you share with characters? You will receive more points the more unlike your response is from everyone else’s (so don’t ask your peers what they are writing). Time your reading. You only have five minutes. You will lose points if you go over.
