    My teacher taught us TIE (I m not really sure what each letter stands for, but this is what it means) Name the device Give an example Explain It s basically tying it all together. My biggest problem is over-thinking it. You don t need to be wordy or use a lot of vocab. Just be thorough and to the point. And my teacher also reminds us that AP stands for answer the prompt. Always bring everything back to the prompt. Just think simpler. Identify the term, give your evidence (a quote/example) and explain it in answer to the prompt. Good luck! I m in the same class and it gets easier. By the end of the year we ll be pros at this. It all comes with practice :) To score high? Like I said before, answer the prompt. I know it seems really obvious, but that s the major point of what you are writing. Look for any hidden questions. Is there a question about tone? Maybe there is a shift in tone so pay close attention to the passage. Also in the passage, annotate it! Read it once through quickly, then go back and read it again while underlining things you can use for evidence or writing notes to help you understand it better. Since it is rhetorical devices, choose a few to focus on and go in depth with. Don t pick all of them and just lightly comment on each one. Choose 3 at the least. Go beyond the obvious. Push your thinking. The only way to get above a 5 or 6 is to not only get the basics down but go further and explain things well. Hit the obvious reasons but then push harder and think outside of the box. Good luck! Also, read the prompt once through and then go back and read it again while annotating it. Circle key words, underline the questions you have to answer. Make sure you completely understand what they want you to do.

    first while you re reading your passage, underline all the rhetorical devices you see like irony, diction, syntax, metaphor.(it would help if you studied the terms too) make sure you read what the question asks of you-its usually like "how does the author use rhetorical devices to contribute to his composition on _____" so first do an analysis of the passage and try connecting the rhetorical devices you found with it. lol sorry if this explanation sucked. but its hard to describe. just read some example passages and responses and you ll get the gist of it.

    the SAT essay is scored very differently - its purpose is to see if you are ready to write any college essays, even mediocre ones, and is scored mostly on not making certain mistakes. theres a link below explaining most of the basics. the ap lang essays, however, are graded heavily on things like style, accuracy and creativity (none of which help on an sat essay). your ap lang class should already be having you practice such essays and giving you detailed feedback on them.
