Mission for the Class

AP U.S. History: The mission for this class is to have each student participate in his or her own learning and draw conclusions based on personal thoughts and experiences.  This class revolves around the principle that the more you become involved in an experience, the more you will learn from it!

Classroom Expectations

Be Respectful: Every student has the right to a safe and secure classroom; you do not have the right to impede or jeopardize that in any way.  Be respectful of yourself, your environment, your fellow classmates, and your teacher.  Treat others the way you want to be treated.

Be Responsible: Act rationally and choose wisely.  Recognize your own role in building a fun and productive classroom environment.

Be Cooperative: You may be asked to participate in an activity that you may not like or think is worthless.  Be mature and work through it. 

Challenge Yourself: Challenge yourself to be productive.  Use your time wisely.
