Hello fellow educators! This writing rubric serves the new AP World History course. Based on the writing rubrics recently released by the College Board, it simplifies the guidelines into a 1-page format to include all possible types found on the exam, including change over time and periodization. It focuses on helping students to develop strong thesis statements, back up their arguments with evidence, and scoring in all required categories for the Spring examination. This has been class tested and approved by students and teachers. Thank you! Owen Cegielski, M.A. History and 20-Year Veteran Teacher, currently pursuing Doctorate in Education at CU Denver.
