2019 AP ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND COMPOSITION FREE-RESPONSE QUESTIONS ENGLISH LANGUAGE AND COMPOSITION SECTION II Total time-2 hours and 15 minutes Question 1 Suggested reading and writing time-55 minutes. It is suggested that you spend 15 minutes reading the question, analyzing and evaluating the sources, and 40 minutes writing your response. Note: You may begin writing your response before the reading period is over. (This question counts for one-third of the total essay section score.) As the rate of violence and crime drastically increases in America, our nation questions the causes of these acts. While some citizens claim it’s the weapons or other items that are causing these crimes to be committed, others say it is due to the environments the individual grew up in. Carefully read the following six sources, including the introductory information for each source. Then synthesize material from at least three of the sources and incorporate it into a coherent, well-developed essay that argues a clear position on whether there is a relationship in children who grow up in troubled homes and adults who live crime filled lives.
