When ALL students are able to access the best that literature has to offer, the results can be amazing. Of course, creating these moments is not always easy. Fortunately, there has never been a better time to explore tools to improve accessibility and engagement, and we've got a great starting point!

In the final session of our #APLangTop5 series, we cover Line of Reasoning. During the session we offer concrete definitions, reading activities, and writing exercises that assist students in building their understanding of how to not only comprehend a line of reasoning, but also produce their own.
In this session of our #APLangTop5 Most Difficult Concept Series, we focus on concretely explaining what commentary is, why it matters in the context of each essay format, and how to scaffold instruction so that students understand how to create analysis and logical coherence within their responses.
In the two sessions of the third installment of our series, “The Top 5 Most Difficult Concepts to Teach in an AP® Language Course...and how to conquer!", we focus on generating evidence for the argument essay and integrating source material in paragraphs for the synthesis essay question.
Over the course of three sessions, Lauren and I use the language from the College Board released exam rubrics to inspire strategies that will enhance sophistication in students’ analysis and argument writing. Each video provides instruction on how to not only potentially earn the sophistication point, but also explains how to provide specific, concrete scaffolds to encourage student growth.
