UPDATED AP EXAM INFORMATION

April 3, 2020

0

Please visit the College Board’s site on their emergency exam testing and read it for detail if you have not yet done so. Me, basing my assumption off of years of teaching AP history classes and a few million DBQs written in high school, figured that there would be no way that the College Board […]

APWH & APEH: What about the Spanish Flu?

April 3, 2020

0

I’ve seen more mentions of the 1918-1919 Spanish Flu pandemic in the press in the last month and a half than I ever have before (save for an APWH DBQ from a few years back). You guys might be wondering about it and why it was so bad – and why people keep citing it […]

APWH: The Treaty of Versailles

April 2, 2020

1

This is the most important and also worst thought out treaty of the 20th Century. Austria-Hungary technically started WWI, but Germany had to shoulder the blame.

Submit the LEQs via AP Classroom by 11:59 tonight if you have not already done so. Don’t forget, we have a Zoom meeting Thursday at 9:30. We’ve shifted to having these during a regular class schedule time to minimize conflict, so any future scheduled Zooms will be held then. Please be aware of the updated […]

APWH LEQ

March 27, 2020

1

The AP Exam will be 45 minutes long and written. Will it be several SAQs? Will it be an LEQ with a couple prompts for you to choose from? It’s a mystery until April 3rd. It’s basically like Mystery Kool-Aid at this point. For right now, we need to do LEQ practice anyway, so I’ve […]

Zoom Chats: Round Two (UPDATED: CHANGED TO THURSDAY)

March 26, 2020

0

These seemed to be helpful (and a great excuse for me to stick with my usual morning routine of attempting to look like a human). I’d like to stick with a weekly schedule from here on out if you can make it. I’ll be taking your questions and explaining things that we’ve been working on. […]
