Question:

Racontez un moment mémorable du weekend passé.

Ingrid L.
Answer:

Tests students knowledge of passé composé vs. imparfait (two main past tenses in French); an open ended question like this allows students to demonstrate a fuller range of their knowledge. Example answer: Ce weekend il faisait beau, donc mes amis et moi sommes allés à la plage. Sur la route, nous avons écouté de la musique rock, et nous avons chanté; c'était amusant. Quand nous sommes arrivés à la plage je voulais nager mais mes amis avaient faim, donc nous avons déjeuné et puis moi, j'ai nagé et mes amis ont bronzés et lu des magazines...

Writing

Question:

What makes for a good argument?

Ingrid L.
Answer:

You arrive at it organically from a reading, for example. It takes a position on the topic chosen, and answers the question "so what." It is supported by evidence from the text.

Literature

Question:

In Chris Abani's "Geography Lesson" who in the poem has the authority to write the cultural narrative of the Igbo?

Ingrid L.
Answer:

The anthropologist assumes this authority, as she licks her pencil, and reduces the story the grandmother tells and simplifies Igbo culture. But the grandmother is also given authority in poem. The work encourages the reader to view the anthropologist's narrative with skepticism, and simultaneously invites readers to accept the grandmother's narrative as a truer representation of Igbo culture.
