We started our final projects today! You can find the important materials by clicking the "Final Project Information and Links" tile on the main page of this website. These projects will be due Friday, June 1. That is also your Final Exam review day, so don't plan to use that day to work on the projects in class, only to turn everything in to me. I will post updated information over the next two weeks as needed.
Well folks, today was the last regular exam! You made it! All that we have left is the AP exam next Friday, your final projects, and the final exam in June!
I will have your DBQ feedback ready by next Thursday. If you will be out of class taking another AP exam that day, feel free to come by any other time Thursday to pick up your feedback. Make sure to check out all the review resources on the APUSH EXAM REVIEW page of this site as you prepare this weekend and next week.
Since we are through with new content and you will mainly be working on your final projects, i will be updating the Blog less frequently. You should still check it out every evening in case I need to post something important, but don't be surprised if we go a few days in a row with no posts. Have a great weekend!
Today was the LAST DAY of new content! We first wrapped up the Clinton era with a discussion centered around some documents detailing the impeachment crisis. Next we tackled the 2000 election and then wrapped up the day looking at the ways the events of September 11, 2001 have been interpreted and used by various political and other groups.
I ended the class with a brief overview of what you should expect for next Friday's AP exam. Make sure you check out the resources linked on our APUSH Exam Review page! Our last exam is tomorrow! (FYI, we dropped the final activity that was on the binder requirements, the War on Terror analysis)
The Final chapter quiz, this one over Chapter 32, was today! Following the quiz, the 1990's were today's topic as we first discussed the Gulf War then proceeded to tackle some of the major issues of the Clinton Administration as we as touch on some of the changes in American society during the decade.
Tomorrow we will wrap up our final content discussions! Friday will be the last regular exam, so make sure to check yesterday's blog for the required contents of your binders for this exam.
We discussed the 1980's today, focusing on Reaganomics first off following our Chapter 31 quiz. After exploring the data round Reagan's economic policies, we looked at the implications of the Iran-Contra scandal and evaluated some political cartoons in a DocBlock exercise.
Chapter 32 (your last!) is due tomorrow. I have also posted below the requirements for the last binder check which will be during Friday's exam.
