Brief update this week as I'm battling some painful carpal tunnel and trying to avoid typing!!
Last week I conferenced with half of the students about their final exam writing, and this week we will finish up. Conferences are going well, and I think students are ready for their exam next week.
While I am conferencing, students are completing their Revision and Review portfolios. Some students are struggling to stay focused on these; please remind your students to take advantage of this in-class time to review!! I know this week will be very challenging for many. I have some students taking up to three AP exams this week! I understand that not much review for AP Lang may get done outside of class week. I’m fine with that as long as they are reviewing while they are in class.
Next weekend, after all their other AP tests are completed and their portfolios are done, I will provide additional review for those students who would like it. The more you can encourage them to take care of themselves this week--plenty of sleep and healthy eating--the better off they will be in the long run. I keep reminding them that they can’t cruise into their final AP test (AP Lang!) running on nothing but fumes.
Please let me know if you have any questions about test prep and try to enjoy this crazy week!
