This is a comprehensive packet for period 4 of AP US History to help students master the content and skills needed to get a 5 on the AP exam. This packet serves as the ultimate work, review, and study packet for students. They contain essential themes, essential terms, DBQ practice, thesis development, and helps develop ALL of the historical thinking skills needed for the course; comparison, chronological reasoning, cause and effect, and change and continuity over time. These packets are created by a veteran APUSH teacher and has included all the tools for success that he has been able to share with students for years within these packets.
The packet is both rigorous and approachable as all the skills are scaffolded within the pages. It includes a rubric with room for peer review and feedback before submitting to the teacher. Best of all, these packets work with any textbook, study book, AMSCO, and will serve as excellent review books for the AP exam in May.
Teachers can choose to hand them out at the beginning of units, as a review at the end, or even as the ultimate review work before the midterm or AP test in May. They can be completed in class or for homework saving teachers tons of time and prep, worksheets, and direct instruction on how to develop essential skills needed for the AP test.
Note: These contain most of the same content and tasks that my workbooks contain- except these allow for more room for students to write as they are full pages and not booklet form.
