Read the 2010 Open Choice prompts. Select 1, and based on the book you read, write an opening sentence for the prompt.
Review the rubric for the prompt you prefer and select one of the student essays to grade (if you read one of the books, select that!)
As you are reading the example essay, highlight what the student does on the rubric--take notes for how you would write your own essay on 1000 or Kite.
