I use this "QuickSheet" for each unit in my class. The page consists of vocabulary and essential questions that help students with content information and analysis.
Vocabulary: BOLD words pulled directly from the AP Course Outline, ITALICIZED words are concepts described in the Course Outline, but not directly named, STANDARD TEXT words are supplementary words that either help explain or elaborate on Concept Outline terms, or are terms likely to be used in primary source texts from the Key Period.
Essential Questions: Each question has been designed to both cover the content in the AP Course Outline and practice one the Historical Thinking Skills tested by the College Board. Questions require students to go beyond basic facts and synthesize information to answer a broader question. These could also be used as prompts for Short answer Questions (SAQ) or essay prompts (LEQ/DBQ)
