2014: GP Syllabus Updates

Happy 1st Day, GP Colleagues!

I sure hope the first day back in the GP classroom treated you well!

In honor of the new school year, I have a VIU…Very Important Update…regarding the new year…

Starting with the 2013-2014 school year, there is one basic adjustment to the GP exam that we MUST be aware of…

There will be 12, as opposed to 15, prompt options available on this year's GP exam!  Spread the word...for clarity's sake!

There will be 12, as opposed to 15, prompt options available on this year’s GP exam! Spread the word…for clarity’s sake!

It regards how many prompts are on the GP exam.  Traditionally–as you may have learned from my previous PowerPoints, covering overview/basics–the GP exam has consisted of 15 prompts from which students are asked to select TWO, so they can write TWO, full essays within the span of TWO hours…

However, PLEASE NOTE that this year’s syllabus will be cutting a single prompt from each of the three sections; therefore…

THERE WILL BE 12 PROMPTS TO CHOOSE FROM ON THIS YEAR’S GP EXAM AS OPPOSED TO THE TRADITIONAL 15. 

It is super important that you make your students aware of this change in the General Paper 8004 syllabus!  Any previously-released exams you share with them will showcase 15 prompts, so just make them aware that the test they will see this May/June will include just 3 less prompts, one omitted from each section to drop us from 15 to 12 options total.

Not a big deal in the grand scheme of things, but we want clarity across the curriculum, and we want to make sure No Student (or Teacher!) Is Left Confused.

For more information, check the AICE: General Paper 8004 Syllabus for the 2014 administration.

Best of luck to you this semester 🙂

Collaboratively Yours,
