• Welcome to APUSH.  There are currently 2 sections of APUSH scheduled for the 2018-19 school year.   If you have questions about the homework you can email me at Mr. Simmons.  I will not be checking my email until Monday Aug. 13th at which point I can respond to your questions.
     
    There will be an optional one-day APUSH Summer Session on Thursday Aug 16th from 9-11 in D212.  It is a drop in session where I can address any summer homework questions you may have.
     
    If you did not attend the end of school year meeting make sure you've signed up on turnitin.com (class ID: 18168933 & enrollment key: Stonewall)  
     
     Summer Homework 
     
    1.  Read Ch.1-4 notes.  Highlight/underline key information.  You will be tested on this information the first week of school.
    -You don't need a textbook to do this BUT I strongly recommend you have one.  It will be helpful to compare the notes to the actual text to prepare you for your own note taking throughout the school year. 
     
    The analysis resource HIPP-TOSS has been replaced by SIPPY.  It is a minor but significant alteration that means less work for you. - June 30th
    2.  This is one of the DBQ's from the 2018 APUSH National Exam. Use it to complete the following DBQ skill activities:
    - Use SIPPY to analyze each of the documents for as many of the items as possible.
    - Write a Thesis statement that clearly answers the prompt.
    - Write a Historical Context paragraph to place the prompt in its proper place in history. (ie - what is going on around the world at the same time that might have influenced the theme of the prompt OR how might the theme of the prompt influenced events that unfolded later in history?)
      
    3***. Read Ch. 5-6 Notes.  Highlight/underline key information. You will be tested on this information by mid-September. 
    -You don't need a textbook to do this BUT I strongly recommend you have one.  It will be helpful to compare the notes to the actual text to prepare you for your own note taking throughout the school year. 
     
    ***This will be assigned during the 1st and 2nd week of September.  If you do it in the summer you won't have to worry about it in the fall.
