I created this handout for my AP students that needed more practice in developing arguments. The only way to get better at writing is to write. With daily practice, I was able to see my students strengths and weaknesses and provide quick feedback. This sheet includes the scoring guide, as well as tips for both their essays and for the argumentative free response on the AP exam. The language "challenge, defend, or qualify" can be changed to "establish a position" based on the assigned reading, and writing goal.
