Today during our tutorial Writing Workshop, we were so happy to welcome back APUSH veterans to offer writing advice!
They worked individually with current students to help develop AP writing skills, and offered the following tips:
-Argumentation in thesis is crucial. if it's not argumentative, you probably don't understand the prompt.
-Evidence is important and you MUST develop relevance to thesis
-Plan! Organize what you'll say before writing anything
-Your writing should be clear and concise, not pretty
-It's not AP English (we have a whole powerpoint devoted to the differences under "Writing Tips")
-Conclusion and topic sentences must relate back to thesis
Special thanks to Misses Caggia, Chen, Haymond, Kharod, Le, Morse, Ryu, and Sarkar for stopping by to help our current students!
