AP Lang: More AP test practice!

Standard: 

ELAGSE11-12RL1 Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.

Learning Target: I can practice answering AP selected response questions and create my own.

Opening Session: AP Lang study tips: How to Get a 5!

Work Session: Today we’re going to be focusing on the selected response (aka multiple choice) questions on the AP Lang test. I’ve got two sample passages for you and about 10 multiple choice questions. The questions all go to the first passage. Today, I’d like you to take about fifteen minutes to answer the questions, and then I want you to work with your table to create your own AP-style multiple choice questions. So use the first ten as examples, and make questions about the second passage in the same manner. After we finish making questions, we’ll trade with another table and answer each other’s, and then give some feedback on how we did as well as the difficulty level of our homemade questions.

Today is a short class (thanks, testing) so that’ll be about it for the day!

Closing Session: Reflect: How did this exercise feel? Was it easy or difficult to answer your classmates’ questions?

Assessment: Formative (journal check)

Differentiation: Process (Scaffolding)

Homework: Read in your independent reading book, work on your alternative book report and any make-up work, STUDY for your AP test!

AP Lang: AP Practice Questions!

Standard: ELAGSE11-12RL1 Cite strong and thorough textual evidence to support analysis of what the text says explicitly as well as inferences drawn from the text, including determining where the text leaves matters uncertain.

Learning Target: I can cite evidence from the text to answer selected response questions.

Opening Session: Write a journal entry considering what we’ve been reading this week with slave narratives and The Souls of Black Folk. These candid depictions of the lives of black Americans have become “classics” of literature. Why do you think these stories are “classics”? What does it mean to be a “classic” and why are they so extensively studied in schools?

Work Session: VOCAB QUIZ!!!!! And Journal Check 🙂

After your vocab quiz, we’re going to take a slight break from AP Essay writing, since you guys wrote a major essay earlier this week, and you’ll be doing AP Exam Multiple Choice questions instead! I have two sets of questions for you, then we’re going to really take our time and read the passages together and go over the questions.

Also, I wanted to take a few minutes to go over the stuff we read yesterday and get your reaction 🙂

Closing Session: Reflection: Write a journal entry reflecting on how you’re feeling for the AP Exam so far. Do you feel prepared? Is what we’re doing in class helpful? What could we do more, what should we do less? Share any feedback you have with me as well!

Assessment: Vocab Quiz, Journal Check, Informal class discussion of Multiple Choice questions

Differentiation: Process (scaffolding)
