*** Updated to reflect the proposed changes for 2018!
According to Marzano, "Teacher feedback should be corrective, timely, and specific to a criterion." These rubrics will allow you to give your AP U.S. History students effective & specific feedback. These rubrics are easy to use (simply check off as you read), and they also give students feedback about their raw score, AP Score, and class score. I recommend using them on FRQs, DBQs, and short responses. Using them all year will allow the students to become familiar with the AP grading criteria and the rubric in general. Keeping the same rubric all year WILL help improve your student's scores!
These rubrics are ready to print and use. These rubrics were modified from other rubrics I had seen and used, but that failed to adequately address the needs of my AP students. Enjoy!
