Test week!! Last week was pretty tough for many of the kids; by Friday many had taken at least one AP test, and they looked ready for a break. Hopefully they got a little rest this weekend, finished their review portfolios, and we can do some final review on Monday and Tuesday to get them thinking about the AP Lang test on Wednesday.
Monday and Tuesday will be dedicated to in-class “games” to review quick thinking strategies for attacking argument prompts. As I’ve told the kids many times in the past few weeks, there isn’t much they can do to cram for the AP Language test. It’s a skills test, they’ve practiced hard all year, and they’re ready.
A few things you can do to help them prior to Wednesday:
On Thursday, we will debrief the test and talk about how it went, and on Friday I’ll share the final project that we’ll be working on for the rest of the semester. No spoilers yet, but it should give them a nice start on their college application essays.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
