World History Honors & AP
NEW UPDATE: Dear APWH Parents:
I have instituted POP Quizzes to test reading requirements. It is basic information pointed out in Chapter Objectives and my Chapter Intro. (I can't talk enough in class to explain an entire Chapter, Students must read & comprehend) The Pop Quiz is basic, tested on the day they are supposed to have read the Chapter by. They are allowed to ask questions on things they don't get, I answer them, before the Pop Quiz.
Students should be reading the Primary Sources in their Textbook, they are all over the Final Exam, I will begin adding these to their Pop Quizzes), intensively studying/understanding maps, (all over the Final Exam)... ASK THEM!
PRINTED NOTES! Some of your Students are not printing out the Notes provided on my website!!! They cover much of the content, and Students add to that in class for later review.
Try to keep your game face on!
