AP World & European History

Welcome back, historians!

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed

by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do.

So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor.

Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover."

Mark Twain

All students are expected to maintain an organized 3-ring binder, to be used exclusively for this class. The binder must feature dividers, with labels, and hold all notes, quizzes, papers and handouts. This will be checked each marking period for a grade.

* Class & reading notes

* Chapter study guides

* Quizzes

* Handouts & Essays

* Charts

In addition, every student is required to bring a composition book that will be used as a journal, and will stay in my classroom. Your journals will be graded at various intervals for a daily grade, so stay up to date. If you are absent, be sure to get the writing prompt from me or another classmate.
