Choose Free-Response Writing on the AP English Language alignment page to find assignments you can use to prepare students for free-response essays.
In these assignments, students will write on real past test prompts, and you will grade them using the official rubric.
For the Rhetorical Analysis question, you'll find two versions of each assignment under the headings Scaffolded Practice Essay and Authentic Practice Essay.
- Scaffolded Practice Essay: These versions use our Rhetorical Analysis Guided Draft to provide just-in-time tips and examples as students write practice essays. If students are just starting to prepare for test essay-writing, we recommend starting with one of these. Learn more about Guided Drafts.
- Authentic Practice Essay: These versions use our Quick Write assignments, which require students to write with no additional support, just like they will on the real test. Try assigning these when you feel your students are ready to write on their own.
