Last year thousands of students inserted the phrase "This is Sparta!" into their AP essays. It looks like this year the phrase will be "Why so serious?" http://talk.collegeconfidential.com/ap-tests-preparation/670387-why-so-serious-putting-smile-ap-test-graders-faces.html
What do you all think of this new tradition? It was actually amusing at the AP psych reading last year, but I was a little worried how student would respond this year after succeeding so well last year. How would you react if you knew your students participated? Does this worry or amuse you?
