The work is not yet done. To prepare for the AP on the 13 th , I want to go over these essay-type questions (some of which you have seen before, most of which are old AP questions). As you know, I am not here Monday and Tuesday. On Wednesday, I will collect from you FOUR outlines. Pick FOUR of these thirty questions and write a good, clear, detailed outline to answer it. Of the FOUR questions you choose, at least two have to be bold- faced questions. This is not busy work . The point of this is to get you to look back through the book through long-forgotten chapters to figure out how to address these broad questions. The reason I want them clear and detailed is so that I can xerox them and hand them out to your classmates, that way you will be contributing four good outlines, but you will get back dozens more to help you study . .. it is like Social Security, a win-win scenario. Also, I will grade these and count it as a test grade (which, quite frankly, some of you need). Therefore, this is NOT a collaborative effort. In other words, the Honor Code applies here. I expect that each outline will take about 35 minutes to do. (Keep in mind, that I also want a case decision from you on Wednesday). I know that the temptation is to slack off now that the weather is nice and all that. But not yet. I guarantee that you can get a 4 or 5 on the AP, but it will take work.
