Sample Essays. The following are actual essays that answer FRQ 1 on the AP Lit exam from 2019 Name: Ashley Haro and Leslie Vargas Directions : You will be analyzing other student samples and scoring them. Read each essay out loud, mistakes and all. Remember, these are timed writes so minor spelling issues are not a big deal. As you read them, highlight in yellow all evidence that is used, and highlight in pink what sounds like a great insight or analysis. Highlight the thesis statement in green. What you do not finish in your groups becomes your individual homework. If you do not have logical highlights and justifications for why you scored each essay, you will not receive credit. Sample reference Write the sample name that you fill fits the scores below. Row A 1 point (Does the essay earn one point for having a clear thesis that directly answers the question?) Row B 4 points (Does the essay have strong supportive evidence and analysis that stays on topic and shows insightful interpretation? Do they use the evidence with accuracy and style?) Row C 1 point (Does the essay have sophistication? Does it: use grammar and writing elements with grace and style? Or does it have insight that is unique and profound? Or does it have a profound ability to connect the themes of the poem to the world outside without losing the analysis of the immediate poem?) EE 1 3 0
Justification of above score The response did earn the point in Row A as it offers a defensible thesis of the portrayal of the landlady is “ominously intimate” as depicted “through the use of techniques like imagery, selection of detail, and tone,”. However, the thesis is provided at the end of the essay. The response earned three points in Row B because it does provide organization and specific evidence that illustrates each of the three literary elements, connecting those pieces of evidence to the line of reasoning. However, the commentary is limited. Ex: “But then, in the end, the reader finds the tone intimate again with the line, And like a lover must know all, all, all.””. The writer doesn’t explain the effect of the intimate tone. The response does not have a thesis to develop and does not demonstrate sophistication of thought or argument. T 1 4 0 Justification of above score The response did earn the point in Row A as it offers a defensible thesis of the complex portrayal of the landlady. The response earned four points in Row B because it provides specific evidence to support the line of reasoning and provides strong commentary. The response does not have a thesis to develop and does not demonstrate sophistication of thought or argument. E 1 2 0 Justification of above score The response earns the point in Row A due to them having a concise debatable thesis of the portrayal of the landlady.
