APUSH May 3-6

This is our final week before the AP Exam on Friday, May 6th. In order to prepare for the exam, we will be completing a timed practice test throughout the week. You will be allowed to use your devices during the practice exam, and this exam will be for a grade, but I highly encourage those of you that are taking the AP exam on Friday to not use your devices (or limit the usage). On Tuesday we will complete the multiple choice, on Wednesday we will complete the short answer, and on Thursday we will complete the DBQ and/or the long answer. You will be able to choose for Thursday.

Next week we will start the American film festival as promised, but you will first need to get the film permission slips signed by your parents. These will be given out on Wednesday of this week and should be turned in by Friday.
