In the lesson, our professor Rebekah Hendershot goes through an introduction on the AP essay section scoring. She starts by explaining holistic scoring and what the reader wants, then she goes over the scoring guide and the two secrets of essay scores.
You don’t have to be profound if you can be clear.
It’s all about level 5.
Readers mentally divide essays into “above 5,” “5”, and “below 5”.
Above level 5, essays sparkle (at least a little) and the reader can get into what the writer is saying more than how he or she is saying it.
If you can understand what you read and write fairly well, your goal should be a 6 or 7 minimum. After that, the tricks to raise your score are more specialized.
