As we go through the year, my goal is for this to be the site for anything and everything for my AP World classes. This will hopefully be a bit more organized and easier to use than my school webpage for students and parents.
Each unit has its own page, and underneath each unit are the key concepts that we will cover.
The assignments, notes, and other activities we do in class will be located under each unit page.
Each concept will have detailed information, along with fact sheets and videos.
Grades are weighted as follows:
50% - Tests, Essay, & Projects
25% - Assignments & HW
25% - Quizzes
For anytime we read in our textbook, please use the Stearns Outlines which are all available on the resource page. As you read, highlight or underline key terms and concepts on the outline to help you better understand the information.
My official tutoring times will be set in the fall. I'm available most mornings and afternoons though for those that need help.
Things you will need day one for my class:
A 3 ring binder that will be used for just APWH
Something to write with (obvious I know)
And that's it.
I'm adding a new section under Resources, Podcasts. First podcast is up on understanding Point of View. I'll continue to add these throughout the summer on the historical skills for our class, understanding the 5 themes, and will use these for chapter reviews, unit reviews, etc.
