aow problems
AOW - Problems
  • Summaries are too “general.” Make sure you give specific details (names, places, dates).
  • Reflections are too short. Tell me what you think about the topic in your article. How does this topic affect you, our society, the world? Why is it important?
  • Annotations: Make sure you are WRITING NOTES in the margins. I am giving a lot of ZEROES on AOW 3 for this section of the rubric!
  • ARTICLES need to be longer. Some of you are losing LOTS of points because you select very simple, very short articles. I am grading for your ability to CRITICALLY THINK about an issue, but if you choose something short and simple, you can’t demonstrate very much critical thinking! So, choose longer articles with more complex issues!
