AP World History This is a guide to survive. We promise it's possible. Alexandra Penrod

period 1 There's a whole world of information waiting for you if only you are willing to find it What to expect: more work than you ever thought you could deal with work that will seem meaningless; you'll wonder when in your life you will ever need to know such redundant information. You can't afford to take anything for granted Mrs. Pompilio to be vague about many things. You may even complain or wonder if you're even learning anything in this class. FYI: it's an AP course, you are expected to learn the material yourself. No pressure. You will want to procrastinate. You will discover it's a bad idea. Depending on you, you may cry. Try not to though; you will be stressed, but understand this is only the beginning. a lot out of yourself, I hope. At least the best. HIGH EXPECTATIONS. Study Groups Study groups are for completing the weekly focus questions. if you're in a group of five people, you can assign one question to each person the questions will be detailed, and the answers will need to be detailed as well. With focus, one can be done in under an hour. choose study partners who you know will work hard and write GOOD responses that make sense and are easy to understand. If you get the question that a BS-er answered for you, you won't pass the quiz. set times, like 3pm the day before to have the questions sent out to your study group via email or facebook. Nothing is worse than getting a question at six in the morning as you're leaving the house to go to APWH that being said, do your best when you answer your own questions. YOU don't want to be the BS-er, do you? How to read the textbook if you want to do well on quizzes, tests, essays, and the exam, you should read through every chapter make sure to read at least what you're responsible for knowing (your focus question) You may not have the time, energy, or interest to read the whole chapter. Actually, that's practically guranteed. It will be extremely hard to read the chapter. DON'T STRESS. try to make time to read, but if you can't, at least skim when you skim make sure to look out for bold terms, dates, and maps (the timeline, chapter summary, and featured maps) +know the difference between different regions, please! Know where things are on the map, or you'll look like a fool when you get an essay question on women in southeast asia and you write one about women in India or China. O.R.G.A.N.I.Z.A.T.I.O.N if you're not a very organized person, I hope you enjoy taking care of your paper beast remember: binders, tabs, calendar! keep your binder organized along the way, don't just throw things together the afternoon before your notebook is due (yes, you have to turn them in for a grade) use tabs and check out the suggested notebook organization on moodle; you'll need a tab for readers, analysis sheets, focus questions (not quizzes), essays, and notes + etc. keep up with the calendar! have things done when they're scheduled to be done so you don't end up with a pile of analysis sheets to do the night before. you will need LOTS and LOTS of PAPER and INK. Keep yourself stocked up at all times, and try to print on the backside if you can, just to save paper (and the earth!) staple your work and put it in your notebook under the correct tab right away on the computer, it would be a good idea to separate assignments by unit or time period. This will make it easier to find stuff for the notebook or study for the exam Preparing the Exam REVIEW GUIDE. Buy a review guide at the beginning of the year. Review it ALONG with the lessons and DO NOT use it in place of the textbook. Practice practice practice multiple choice tests to learn the tricks that are likely to fool you on the exam (and during the year) review vocabulary terms. They are usually the trickiest on the multiple choice exam. They'll also make you sound smarter on your essays. OTHER HELPFUL HINTS be careful on the internet! The book knows what you need to know for the exam, the internet doesn't! don't stress! you can get an A in the course and a 5 on the exam as long as you keep up with work, do well on unit exams, and review, review, REVIEW! It's impossible to know everything, but be sure to know as much as you can, and WELL. The schedule is subject to change. Be sure to listen to Mrs. Pompilio about calandar adjustments. Don't rely on other people to tell you every little detail. Practice writing essays/outlines without studying beforehand, then check to see how you would've done. Good Luck!~ Have no fear!
