Opening Session: Review of the AP Rubric, since it’s been a while since we’ve written an essay 🙂
Work Session: Today we’re writing an AP Essay! This is a released prompt from an actual old AP exam. This particular prompt comes from 2005, which happens to be the year I took AP Lang in high school. So that’s a fun coincidence 🙂
As usual, you will have 40 minutes to write the essay, and then we will trade and peer grade them.
Closing Session: Find the person who graded your essay, put your real name on it, and then return it to me so I can grade it!
