If you would like to see an essay that AP scored a “9” for the prompt on The Onion article, you can see it here. The responses for The Onion article begin on page 9. The first response (2A) earned the “9” score. If you would like to see the scores and commentary for this essay or the other two, go to the AP Central Language and Composition Exam Information Page, scroll down to the 2005 prompts, and click on “Scoring Commentary.”
I have an example of the essay using the “spiraling” organization, but weirdly, it is in 5 different jpegs. If I post them here, I don’t think you’d be able to read it anyway. However, if you’re interested, you can ask me in class and I can let you read the example in hard copy.
Finally, although I realize that many of you have other AP classes and are taking other AP tests starting next week, you are still accountable for the preparation WE are doing for the LANG. AND COMP. test! Therefore, missed assignments will have to made up; however, as long as it is not a quiz, you can wait until after our AP test to do so!
