I love those AP kids!
We read the last 3/4 of Oedipus Rex today in both my AP Literature and Composition classes. Fifth period (last one of the day) is mostly show choir girls. Most of them had a part to read, even if it was taking turns reading the chorus lines. A couple of them decided to do accents while they read. The girl doing Jocasta read as some kind of redneck trailer trash and I swear I was almost crying at one point. Another girl was reading chorus parts as a retarded British woman, and the whole time some of the other choir girls were randomly echoing words in song. I could barely stop laughing long enough to stop the narrative and go over the various aspects I wanted to discuss.
My regular English IV class started A Tale of Two Cities today. That’s going to be interesting. "We have to read this whole thing?" Yeah.
