Welcome to your first blog entry! This week's writing activity will be focused on building your skills with writing a CCOT Essay for the AP exam. We have already looked at this question in an in-depth manner in the classroom and you all have read three student examples from the 2006 exam. Now it is your turn to write. Since this is still new to you, spend 45 to 1 hour writing this essay (no more!). Then post your essay to this page in the comments section by Tuesday, October 22nd. You will then respond to 2 essays (within your group) by Thursday, October 24th. Your response should be based on the AP scoring guideline for this exam and follow the format we have been using in class. If you need to access the scoring guidelines, please go to the AP World History Free Response Questions Website: http://apcentral.collegeboard.com/apc/members/exam/exam_information/216943.html.
