I am using this lesson during the first week of school to introduce AP writing skills and expectations, which will benefit all students, but especially those who are taking AP for the first time. You can edit the PowerPoint to best fit your classroom needs. This lesson is discussion-based, so we will be working through the slides together. For example, the students will be the ones telling ME what they consider strong "dos" and "don'ts" when writing essays.
This lesson is geared for a 45 minute lesson. I will also download the AP Writing Skills worksheet that correlates with this PowerPoint.
