For AP Seminar, we have a slightly new end plan for the year. For each reading assignment, you will be expected to annotate (like a member of a high school AP class) and meaningfully discuss the article for class. If you miss a day of class or do not complete the annotation/discussion, the only way to make up the work will be to complete an EOC A-exam response for the article.
EOC Exam Parts
- Identify the author’s argument, main idea, or thesis. (one sentence)
- Explain the author’s line of reasoning by identifying the claims used to build the argument and the connections between them. (one-two paragraphs)
- Evaluate the effectiveness of the evidence the author uses to support the claims made in the argument. (one-two paragraphs, but if section 2 is one paragraph, this should be two)
Articles for Discussion
