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.
