1. ...success if you put in the required effort & preparation.
2. ...assistance. If you need extra help do not hesitate to make an appointment. I am often available either before/after school or on my lunch period. I'm here for you.
3. ...... to learn the required historical thinking skills to pass the AP exam. HTS= Causation, CCOT, & Comparison.
4. ...to learn how to analyze primary & secondary sources and be able to provide the context, audience, POV, and purpose for such documents. Learning how to apply these skills is an absolute must for passing all sections of the AP exam.
5. ...to learn how to correctly write an DBQ and LEQ. Knowing this process is essential to passing the APUSH exam since it is 50% of the exam. If you do not know how to write it will be very difficult to pass the exam. I will help you prepare for these sections!
6. ...AP style tests that will prepare you for the APUSH exam. By using these types of questions you will already be used to analyzing such questions and thus be more prepared for the final exam than if you took "regular" multiple choice tests. This will benefit you because this section is the other 50% of the AP exam.
7. ...to be challenged. By choosing to take an advanced college level course it is assumed you are prepared to take on the a higher level of thining that goes with such a course. That said, I do provide a variety of meaningful extra credit that is geared
toward the skills needed to help you succeed. I am also available for help by appointment.
YOU DO NOT GET...
1. ... busy work. Assigning lengthy assignments that often times students do not put the required amount of effort into completing or just copy from a peer. I have seen this first hand and it is frustrating as it just becomes busy work with no real value. Also if I am going to assign something I want to be able to give meaningful feedback and not just a mere completion grade which is often what it becomes.
2. ...to not be prepared for all facets of the exam. I will
not leave you without the writing or analyzation skills that is required to pass the AP exam.
3. ...to not finish the required curriculum. If we fail to finish the required curriculum then I am not putting you in a position where you can succeed. This will not happen.
4. ...fast-forwarding through the curriculum and jamming any analyzation & writing into a short time frame. This course goes fast enough without going any faster. This sacrifices content knowledge that you will need in both the multiple choice & writing sections of the exam.
