After looking over your input on the plan for next week, we will be looking back at Period 1 through 5 and reviewing the most significant content, documents, and skills likely to show up on the AP Exam. We will develop a specific plan and post document for Monday this weekend. Remember, until April 13, these are all optional, ungraded assignments. We will fill you in on the Grading plan for Quarter 3 & 4 as soon as we get final direction from the district, expected Monday or Tuesday next week!
For those of you interested, here's the link to the AP Resources from College Board:

Below is a link to an important survey! We need your input on our plan for next week. WCPSS is allowing us to begin introducing new content next week, but actual graded instruction will not begin until AFTER Spring Break, on April 13. We won't know the dates of the AP Exam from College Board until April 3 (next Friday), though they are likely to make late May sometime one of the options. With all of that in mind, please respond ASAP to the survey. Mr. Richardson and I will offer another reminder during the 10am session tomorrow then let you know the plan for next week based on these results on the Blog and at the 1:00 pm Q&A session tomorrow.
P.S. Be looking for an IMPORTANT email from your 2nd period teachers to you or your parents' email today or tomorrow and reply ASAP! Thanks again!

For tomorrow's session we will be building on the historical context we covered at the end of today's session: Farmer's were experiencing exceptional difficulties and they transformed organizations like Farmer's Cooperatives into a powerful political party, the People's Party, still today the most successful third party in American history. We will also be discussing how that party's efforts played out in North Carolina and focusing on a specific event that occurred in Wilmington in 1898. You can final all the optional prep materials in the slideshow below:
Tomorrow's optional video review will begin with a discussion over the His Death Avenged Activity you will find in the slideshow linked below. We will then be discussing Farmer's problems and the rise of Populism. We'll provide some documents on the screen as we discuss tomorrow.

We will be back at it again offering optional extension opportunities tomorrow at 10am! We will be walking through the other document sets we didn't get to today (Cowboys, Homesteaders, Mexican-Americans, and Women). Tomorrow's session will end 10:50am at the latest so that Mr. Richardson and I can attend our virtual faculty meeting. We will be back in individual sessions at 1:00pm tomorrow for Q&A. If you have any questions you want addressed, pop in on those sessions. We will post all of the links you need to get to tomorrow's sessions in updates to this blog post tomorrow, so check back for those!
HERE IS THE VIDEO - The first document set didn't record, so I'll post details of the discussion highlights below later tonight.
In tomorrow morning's video session, we will be discussing Westward Expansion during and after the Civil War. The historical context for this discussion is drawn from Chapter 17, so if you wish, you may read and take notes over that chapter. Below you will find the document sets we will be discussing during our session. Feel free to scan these, looking at one or two documents of your choice from each document set. Be prepared to share your thoughts on the documents you examined in the video discussion tomorrow. :)
