English Mock Reading Workshop March 3 & 4

Content
● We will score questions 2 & 3 from both the AP Literature and AP Language classes for participating schools.
● Teachers will be trained to deconstruct prompts and apply the new 6 point rubric provided by the College Board to score essays.
● Each subject area will be led by an experienced College Board reader who is currently reading the national exam.
● Teachers will work directly with table leaders who are experienced College Board readers in their subject areas.
● Teachers will collaborate with other teacher readers at their virtual table to evaluate essays and develop an understanding of targeted instruction to be addressed between the Mock Reading
Workshop and the AP Literature and AP Language exams in May of 2021.
● Students and teachers will use an online essay and scoring platform comparable to the platform used by the College Board to address COVID needs.
● Teachers will receive targeted professional development to address student instructional needs for both AP writing and college level writing.

Join our AR AIMS Directors as they host “Zoom After Hours”.  These are free, interactive zoom sessions that may spotlight a specific topic or virtual learning technique.  It is also an opportunity to visit and collaborate with teachers around the state in your specific field.  We want this to be YOUR TIME.  These events will be held monthly through May.
