Tuesday, 9/22

I gave students 20 minutes of independent novel reading time at the start of class. While they were reading, I stamped their Lincoln essays that were due today. We then discussed how the AP test is scored, playing with some online score calculators and going into more depth with the scoring of the essays. We reviewed the Lincoln scoring guide, and students self-evaluated their essays. When students finished these evaluations and turned them in with their essays, they got a copy of the article for our next Socratic seminar. Homework: read and annotate the article I gave you; then find 1–2 additional articles online, and print, read, and annotate those; if you don’t have this done for class on Thursday, you won’t be able to participate in the seminar.
