This lesson requires students to review material by putting information into the 7 AP themes using the 9 AP time periods. The activity allows students to look for change and continuity, causation, and periodization.
Students who are reviewing and preparing for the AP US History Exam often devolve into trying to memorize stacks of flash cards. With the new test format and organization instructors can help their students think thematically and use chronology to review content. Help prepare your kids to be successful on the AP Exam by providing them opportunities to study meaningfully. This review doesn’t provide them with the answers, but allows them to organize and research from work they have done all school year.
The lesson is in a Word Document allowing you to make modifications and adjustments that best suit your program.
The tips have been derived and generated from the AP Central Exam information page, the College Board AP United States History Professional Development program 2014-2015, and my experience as an AP reader.
