Over the break, I had my AP class solve 2 free response questions each. Then, I set them up in groups of 3 and they taught each other. This was a perfectly timed activity as it helped them review all the stuff that we had been doing for two and a half weeks before break, and it forced THEM to do the brainwork instead of me. I feel really good about their progress in general, but a lot of them are still really struggling with free response questions, and I can't really figure out why. I think a large part of it is English difficulties (my class this year seems to have much weaker English than last year) but really, who knows.
