Today I was able to get a head start on studying for the Literary Terms test. Yes my group may have been a little talkative, but we were able to get the literary terms written down and able to help each other out on defining each term. This will help me on the AP exam by using some of the terms in my essays for evidence in answering a passage. Also in knowing what the terms mean when asked in a multiple choice question.

The passage The Watchmen has a major theme of self doubt. The protagonist in the passge is trying to find himself and figure out who he is. He is trying to find his "costume" and a name for himself. He thinks of himself as stupid for every name he comes up with. The man is also trying to figure out where he fits in by him trying to figure out his "costume." He is unsure of the type of person he is and unsure of himself which shows his self doubt.

My plan on studying for the AP test is to study, study, study! I plan on getting focused and practicing essay prompts, multiple choice questions and studying the Literary Terms. I plan on doing this by taking the tests seriously and using the ones that Dr. Preston has given us the option to use.
