APUSH Course Update, July 24, 2017
It is difficult to believe that we are just over two weeks until the school year begins. I just wanted to address a couple of questions that I have received this summer about the work assigned and the assessment on the first day:
Summer Work: I do not expect your responses to be perfect or the level that they will be later in the year; you have not received the instruction that you will. What I do expect, however, is your sincere, honest, and best efforts in answering the questions and completing the map. This assignment will be collected on the first day and graded in the first week.
Assessment: As described in the summer work packet, you will have an assessment on the work on the first day of school. The first ten questions will be based the critical thinking tasks and will go into the quiz category. The last 30 questions will be based on the map assignment and will be counted as extra credit in the course assessment category. I share this information not to relax students, but in an effort towards full disclosure and a strong recommendation to do your best. In the same way that the summer work is my attempt to get ahead in the course, the extra-credit is your opportunity to get ahead in your grade.
As always, please contact me if you have any questions.
