It is the end of day 3 at the AP World History reading in Fort Collins, Colorado and I have read a little over 200 essays. I have to say that the rubric we are using is very generous with the number of points a student can get on the essay. I am grading the compare and contrast essay about racial ideologies between North America and Latin America during 1500-1830.
Although it can get tedious to just read essay after essay it has been more enjoyable than when I sit at home and grade my student's essays. My table leader keeps telling me that day 4 is when everyone hits a wall....we shall see how it goes tomorrow. I just hope that I don't dream about essays again tonight like I did last night.
