"HISTORY! It's the most fun you can have in school!"
There are at least two goals in A.P. European history: to learn the history of Europe from about 1450 to the recent past and to prepare for the A.P. examination in European history. My own goals include getting to know you and having fun.
The A.P. examination consists of three parts: multiple choice questions, a document-based question (DBQ) and two free-response thematic essay questions. Part of the curriculum for A.P. Euro, therefore, includes instruction in how to attack these tasks effectively. To give you experience and skill in these types of evaluation, tests will be in one or more of these formats.
To learn enough material to be worth evaluating, we will do a variety of activities individually and also in small and large groups. In addition to reading and writing, activities will include discussion, lecture, research, and debate. I am eager to hear your suggestions for other activities as well.
Each activity or test is worth a certain number of points and your grade is the percent you earn of the total points assigned. The scale is A = 91-100, B = 81-90, C = 71-80 and so on. I do not offer extra credit in this program, except for the quick five points you can earn by bringing in a box of tissue, a bag of cough drops, a box of pencils, a package of notebook paper, or a bag of Hershey's kisses for the good of the class. If you do not think five points is a lot, consider the difference between 86 and 91. Only one per quarter, please.
I assume most of you have successfully completed World History A, and American History A or AP. I assume most of you know how to "do school." If you have special needs, or learning differences, I hope you will speak with me about them promptly so that I can help you succeed.
DRACONIAN LATE POLICY: Your work is due on the date it is assigned and during the class period you usually attend. Your work is due whether or not your absence from school is "excused." Late work is accepted until the end of the quarter but will not earn more than 71% of possible points. If you are late for an assignment you should still do it: Something is always better than nothing.
EXPECTATIONS: Academic honesty (ask me if you do not know what it means!); prompt, prepared and regular attendance; respect for classmates and instructor; neither potables, comestibles, gum or grooming behavior in class; hard work. A sense of humor is a plus.
