Tuesday, 9/30

After about 20 minutes of reading time to start class, we discussed some more of the nuts and bolts of the AP Lang test in May — particularly, how the test is scored and what you need to get on each section to be successful. Then we reviewed the scoring guidelines/rubric for the 2007 Rhetorical Analysis prompt (Sanders), and we looked at three anchor papers to better understand the rubric and what the scorers are looking for. Homework: the first fourth of your independent novel is due on Thursday; also, if you have not completed the Malcolm X assignment due today, we didn’t get to it, so you have some extra time to finish.
