As of now my plan is to look into the programming group to see if that interests me. Other than that I also may join the literature group and want to keep my eyes open to see if any other groups look interesting as well. I will probably need to use resources such as the internet and books

I used the practice exam with the answer's included so that I could check my answers. It was hard not to cheat though, but if I honestly put what I thought it was it was a little surprising how many I could actually get right, but at the same time the sort of concepts I was missing. Some of the literary terms that are more vague or not as commonly seen were hard to remember off the top of my head. It was good to get a look at the sort of things that I did know, and what I need to spend a little more time with.

1. 1983, pick a character who is a villain and explain how they affect the play. Evil and temptation are big parts of the play, so this is an important subject. 2.1994, choose a character who appears briefly but who is important to the play as a whole. Macbeth has the witches, who arn't in it for very long, but are very important. 3. 1975, write about a stereotypical character from a work of merit. Macbeth is a very typical character, corrupted by power, leads to his own demise; but it is very important to the work.

My plan to prepare for the AP test is to learn the vocabulary well, review how to analyze poetry, and how to write more concisely and efficiently. I need to work on keeping the focus of my writing on a single subject, and not let it flip around with my thought process.

• Lady Macbeth- Lack of inner-will • Macbeth- kills to ease his mind, does whatever he can to ease his mind • Would’ve been in the clear, but continued to murder after Duncan. Self-destructive • What matters to Macbeth post murder isn’t good or bad, but on easing his mind. • Begins as man, ENDS AS KILLING MACHINE!!! :O • Refuses to evade what he has become • Cares about no one, not even his wife • Witches have malicious intentions, prophetic power • Manifestations of evil, tempt people • Similar to “Monkey’s Paw”/Garden of Eden • Constant reminder of evil, temptation in the world • Witches could be looked at as proletariat (common people) (juxtaposition?)
