Studying the AP Rubric

Today, we’re looking at sample student essays from a previous AP test.  To start, read the 9-point rubric quietly to yourself.

Now, in groups, you should read the nine student samples and rank them from 1-9.  I will share the answers with you later.

What do you notice higher-scoring essays have that lower-scoring essays don’t?  What about essays scoring in the mid-range?

Here is a generic AP scoring rubric for you to reference all year.

With the time remaining, you may continue work on your “Century Quilt” chunking handout.

Don’t forget Socratic Seminar #2 is tomorrow.
