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!
