Transcript of AP Art History: Getting Started

This is the 28 day "try it on" period after you are activated in the course. If we decide that this course is not a good fit for you during the Grace Period, you can withdraw without penalty. Following your Grace Period you would receive a withdraw/failing on your transcript. You are required to stay on pace and submit the assigned assessments each week. This course requires self-discipline, which is an essential skill for college. This is not an Honors course, where the teacher drives the student. Instead, this is an AP course where the student has intrinsic motivations to learn about Art and how it relates to history and culture.

In the first gallery of the course, you will find a "pace chart" to follow or syllabus for each week. PRINT IT OUT! Follow it. If you choose not to consistently submit the assigned work, you may be withdrawn from the course. Monthly Calls Discussion Based Assessments (DBAs)

Each gallery has an oral component, aka DBA. It’s an opportunity to exhibit your knowledge of the current module. It is part of our Academic Integrity check. These DBAs are a required part of the course. Remember, this is a "discussion-esque," phone exam. If you are prepared, then there is no need to be nervous! KEEPING IT REAL Let's Go! You are done here. Call me and we can complete your "Welcome Call." You can also make an appointment using the "Appointments" tab. Please print out and sign your two acknowledgment forms located on the "Getting Started" tab where you found this presentation.

I can't wait to meet you by phone! Have a parent and your questions ready.
