Students, don't forget that you will find daily agendas, assignments, gradebook, and everything else that you need for my class at kpbsd.instructure.com.
Right off the bat, you should know that there are absolute multitudes of resources out on the web relating to AP World. If you don't like the way I do things, or maybe you do but they just aren't quite working for you, there are several other places you can look for additional support to ensure that you're ready for the exam at the end of the year, and more importantly that you've learned as much as you could. Find those resources listed below.
A word of encouragement to students: You can do this. Dedication is the key, however. If you find that you lack the ability to really dedicate yourself to your work and your studies, this may not be the course for you. If you think you can rise to the challenge, I will help you in every way that I can. I'm here to make this class a possibility for you. But you must stick to it. Your writing skills, note-taking skills, study habits, and knowledge of history can and will all grow, but the one thing you really have to bring to the table yourself is sheer dedication.
You can find the login/registration information that you need on Canvas.

Units will become available as their unit pages are complete. If it's grayed out, it isn't ready. (Some of these are black and white anyway, but that's why you're getting permission denied if you're clicking on these. It isn't that I don't like you.)
