ESSAY EVALUATION RUBRICS for AP LANGUAGE & COMPOSITION (Current Update: OCT. 19, 2019): contains the most recent Fall 2019 updated language from the College Board.
With AP’s changes to Language & Composition this year, these NEW student-friendly rubrics (that also correlate to 100-, 50-, and 25-point scales as converted from the old 1-9 holistic rubric) have already saved my ESSAY EVALUATION SANITY this fall! I’ve taken the NEW AP Language & Composition Rubrics and made them not only student-friendly, but also teacher-friendly. (I use these in conjunction with Essay Evaluation Comment sheets to lighten the ink that I put on students' papers, to continue to give specific and effective feedback, and to shorten the response time for that feedback.) And when it comes time to REALLY DIG IN with students and ANALYZE writing, we get down and dirty with our ROUND-ROBIN READING EVALUATION (nearly ready for release)!
As AP teachers, we know that we want students to write often. But managing that paper load is a DAUNTING task. Enhanced AP College Board rubric language and spatial organization in conjunction with color makes using these rubrics and teaching with these rubrics easy peasy lemon squeezy! Of course, an instructor can easily add more observations and annotations via the Essay Evaluation Comment sheets.
This digital download includes all three NEW color rubrics for AP Language & Composition: synthesis, argument, and language analysis. (This also makes finding materials much easier for students when they began gathering their reading and writing materials for the metacognitive essay that they research and write at semester).
And when I do want students to work on grammar, usage, mechanics, and style issues in their writing, I individualize instruction and assessment and assign that work to the students who need that work (using the following resources).

Here’s to helping students look at what they’ve done well and what can improve! Here’s to putting the writing responsibilities of revision back in the hands of students! Yay! Please breathe and enjoy! Feedback is always welcome—and encouraged!
We'll talk soon!
