AP US History Students "Grade Exams"

At the Girls Division, every Friday AP class is devoted to study of one element of the AP US History National Exam.  On this Friday and many others, the students simulated the grading of sample essays as it is carried out every year in Tampa, Florida by some 1700 AP teachers from all over the country.  The students looked for Thesis, Context, Evidence and Argument in sample essays and assigned scores to each while snacking on a variety of chocolates just like the "real" AP readers do.
