For your final presentation, you will need to create a PowerPoint presentation that features all of your weekly assignments (diary entry/letter, movie poster, and character sketch and interview). You should include brief samples and snippets from each part of your project.
You should use PowerPoint as a means of highlighting what you read and created as you worked on this project. It is not a book report or plot summary! Your presentation should also address the idea of "alienation" and how it relates to the book. Specifically, address this question from the 2010 AP Literature and Composition exam:
Palestinian American literary theorist and cultural critic Edward Said has written that “Exile is strangely compelling to think about but terrible to experience. It is the unhealable rift forced between a human being and a native place, between the self and its true home: its essential sadness can never be surmounted.” Yet Said has also said that exile can become “a potent, even enriching” experience.
Use your novel, in which a character experiences such a rift and becomes cut off from “home,” whether that home is the character’s birthplace, family, homeland, or other special place. Discuss how the character’s experience with exile is both alienating and enriching, and how this experience illuminates the meaning of the work as a whole.
The allotted time for your presentation will be 5-7 minutes. You should address this question in your presentation while providing direct support from the text. Remember to also highlight some other "snippets" from your project.
