Product Description

Over my many years of teaching AP Language and Composition, I have sometimes found that the students get one essay prompt that is not one of the expected 3: argument, argument with synthesis and analysis of a work. These "suprise" prompts have been comparison contrast WITHOUT a work to analyze, an example essay that needs creativity and analysis WITHOUT a work to analyze, ect.

Here are six prompts: three argument without synthesis and three of the "suprise" variety that sent panic waves through my students the first time a class got one. So now I make up my own "suprise" ones, so they get used to the possibility of this happening. Also, I'm always on the look out for material to make up prompts for arguments without synthesis. I have also included tips on how to write most of these essays. If you give lots of timed in class essays like I do, you cannot have too many prompts since each class has different needs. I also give my students extra credit for writing timed essays after school. Teach the essay type, then practice, practice, practice is how I have consistently received pass rates of ninety percent and above.
