@ 63% 508 PM ll Verizon drivegooglecom They seemed to define it as something exaggerated or something bad As usual the prompt literally defined overrated for you! So even if you were fuzzy on the term a close reading of the prompt would have helped you out I think part of this confusion comes from the fact that it's something students hear and say all the time without maybe really thinking about what they mean One of the first hurdles to choosing something overrated is being able to identify something I that is in fact highly regarded by some people Some students struggled to identify something that would work and thus derailed themselves from being able to make a strong argument By far we saw a few topics come up repeatedly 1 social media influencers usage obsession with likes etc 2 school related things high school is overrated standardized tests are overrated college is overrated ivy Leagues are overrated and yes a few AP exams are overrated etc 3 fame &e celebrities 4 money Personally I thought it was nice to see students being a little critical of social media TBH It showed that they aren't just blindly accepting of their world It was a little disappointing though not surprising to hear how jaded students are with the school system You all know how I feel about grades and the college admissions rat race still students weren't really arguing against the rat race They argued much more organically about how the system isn't worth it These are kids who've had college shoved down their throat since birth and they're not having it at least they don't want to The irony is that these kids writing about how overrated it all is are in fact taking a standardized test in the hopes of getting college credit So while they're seeing beyond the everyone must go to a four year college at any cost mentality they're still participating in it because that's the expectation It was a little sad really Anyhow I digress So the cool thing about this prompt was that as a reader you never knew what you were gonna get when you opened that book Some were really thoughtful and interesting others run-ofthe-mill some just really unique Any of them could work well it was ENTIRELY about how well the student made their case rather than the thing they decided was overrated There was quite a variety of topics students chose to write about all with mixed success There wasn't really a single topic that couldn't have been done well in the hands of the right student The most important thing was the explanation of why they thought it was overrated which included being able to identify what some people like about it and then being able to explain why that particular factor is not worthy of its praise It was all about the connections and explanations that the From an AP Lang test reader Do you guys remember what you did for Q3? I talked about dictators torturing and social media lol and how they are too too relevant in society making them “overrated” Probably got a one but it’s whatever lol Meme
