Okay - I've been thinking of changing how I use the review days in class. In the past, I've given free response questions (since we've only looked at one of them so far, although there is a reason for that - most FRQ cover more than one of our units, so we couldn't keep going on them...) - timed the response, graded them overnight, gone over them the next day in class.
Since I don't care whether I take them for a grade or not, and since all of you have at least one more AP exam than this one, I'm seriously thinking of changing that. I could give a FRQ a night for you to look at and attempt, and we could go over it the next day (with the College Board scoring sheet so you know how it would be graded) and then we could review the most important parts there and look at some other FRQ or m/c. No timed writing, in other words, but you'd have to do some on your own at night if you wanted to get the full experience.
Or - we could do FRQ at night with m/c practice during the class period.
Or - we could do FRQ in class with m/c practice as homework.
Or - we could do ...other things, as suggested by you. :) We are down to 10 school days to the national exam and I want to use them as wisely as possible. After the unit 4 test, we are down to 6 school days.
I'm open for any suggestions - this is your test, your college credit. There are WAAAAYYY too many of you, though, sitting there saying "I'm not going to pass the national exam anyway, so it doesn't matter." These tests are NORMED - that means that you only do as well as the others taking the test. STUDY!!! You can do this - you can pass - you can get the credit. You know more than you think you do - you just need to review it so you can recall!
Rah rah rah! There's my cheerleader imitation. That's as good as it gets. ;)
