“The charm of history and its enigmatic lesson consist of the fact that, from age to age, nothing changes and yet everything is completely different.”
Hi AP students!
Here are several resources to consult throughout the year to prepare for the AP exam:
This is the AP College Board website. It includes information about the exam and course content, some study tips, and practice exam questions, among many other things.
This interactive website is organized around the nine time periods and includes videos, images, documents, and other features designed to help you deepen your understanding.
We will be using some variation of this textbook this year. Although not all the features of this site are operational, you can click on a specific chapter number and access things like chapter study outlines, vocabulary flashcards, chronology practice exercises, etc.
I signed our class up on this free website that has review materials and practice tests, plus a personalized study room for each student. Follow these directions for creating an account on the site and then join our class.
1. Go to the website and click on "I'm a student".
2. On the students page, choose "AP US History".
3. On the AP US History page, click on the "Enroll now" button.
4. Create an account or log in if you're already signed up.
5. You're now in your personal Study Room.
6. Click on the "Join a Class" tab on the left and enter this code: P9NMMHE
The John Green "Crash Course" videos in youtube are also helpful. Search for crash course us history 1 to get started. The segments are numbered, so it might make sense to go in order. We will sometimes view these in class.
