Flipping the Classroom and Free Response Questions

As you know, if you teach AP Government, all students need to complete four free response questions.  I usually devote a day to teach the basics (that Frank has done above) and then I actually pick a question and have the students answer it and then grade several of  the questions using a rubric.  This is exactly what we do at the AP reading as my goal each year is to make them prepared to be as good as the actual readers (graders).  By the way, if you are interested in grading AP Government, we are grading this year in Salt Lake City which has lots of great outdoor activities to do once the grading day is done at 5 pm.
