My dear students,
I hope you are doing well. You are all going to do great on your AP Exam this week! Remember to set yourself up for success by resting, hydrating, and prepping well before the exam itself.
This week during class we will be reviewing Periods 3-5 on day 1 and 6-7 on day 2. Please note you can find resources for the DBQ, such as the new rubric, our writing guide, and an hour long video of your teachers prepping for the exam, on our usual website ghhsapush.com under exam review and/or writing tips. You can also stop in to office hours to ask any questions or go over a DBQ you've written. I think the BEST prep you can do is taking an old DBQ and giving yourself 8 minutes to prep your argument & thesis.
I look forward to seeing you this week and wish you best of luck on all your exams. Please stay safe, healthy, and sane out there :)
In the content review sessions we went through and annotated curricular framework documents. You can download them below and might find them to be a helpful resource, in addition to your own textbook notes, for the open-note AP Exam. Please also note the DBQ writing guides uploaded.
(Periods 1-2, 8-9 not on exam)
Hi all :)
Great first day. It is a joy to hear from you and I hope you and your family are doing well. Today we checked in, set expectations for the rest of the semester, analyzed the new AP exam DBQ rubric, and looked at the 2017 DBQ.
I uploaded the 2020 DBQ rubric to the exam review page.
I uploaded the 2017 DBQ we worked through to period 3 and am linking it HERE. Please try to work up your own response to this DBQ prior to our next session on Thursday. Don't take more than 30 minutes :)
Please do keep up with the calendar. In our next class we'll be discussing the gilded age and going over your responses to the 2017 DBQ. You are awesome and I look forward to seeing you soon!
Tomorrow we will start back, kinda! We will go to our official, remote learning phase of this coronavirus shutdown.
