The Difference Between the AHA Conference and AP Grading

For those of you who have ever wondered about the differences between attending the AHA Conference and AP Grading here is a handy little sheet. There are probably other differences too, but these are the only ones I could come up with before dinner.

Some of the best lines from the AP papers I graded in the last two days about the Great Awakening:

  • Also during the Great Awakening people started changing their way of life. People started listening to different kinds of music like jazz.
  • When Virginia Tech quarterback Michael Vick was drafted to play football for Atlanta Falcons he brought a whole new style with him. This is much like the Second Great Awakening.
  • When Tom Sawyer wrote Uncle Tom's Cabin it created excitement around the world.
  • Before the Second Great Awakening Puritans and Muslims were trying to make themselves fit into society.
  • Alcohol and religion just seem to go together.
  • I suck at history, why can't this be a math test?

These are some lines from a question on the Shay's Rebellion and the Whiskey Rebellion.

  • Nothing can come between a man and his whiskey except maybe 13,000 troops.
  • Shay's Rebellion was an important even remembered by many people. Unfortunately, I am not one of them.
