World History Honors & AP
APWH Students & Parents:
Your Student has been given access to a valuable tool for Student success: Albert.io, which gives them access to hundreds of Exam-style questions. This came at great expense to Forest's AP Department. SADLY, few of your Students are accessing it... I do try!
*NEW* Students are now getting POP QUIZZES on APWH Objectives that are given for EACH Chapter, that they will be tested on in the Final Exam! Many DO NOT LEARN THEM, though they are covered.
1750 to 1900
Enlightenment to Revolutions... 12–15% of Final Exam
Industrialism & its Consequences... 12–15%
Honors Students & Parents:
Students will be challenged to figure out this Unit on their own (They can do it) based on what they have learned so far this year. It will be done in a Group Competition format
YOUR KIDS DID GREAT!!!
Try to keep your game face on!
