We now have some important information about the exams administered during 2020. Here are the critical details and changes:
As of yet, we still do not know what the AP Exam question types will be. As a result, in my classes we will focus on wrapping up the content that will be covered on the exam and will also start preparing review materials in case the early test date is something you want to participate in.
Currently, the video lessons put out by AP are not coming from periods that are tested, but they are good for context and for concept application (among other things) for each of the exams. I still highly recommend you watch them, as they are free and of high quality.
Hello, AP Students. I hope you are well! I have a few pieces of information for you that will be of use.
This year, due to the pandemic, the College Board has made some dramatic changes to the AP tests. They will now be abbreviated, 45 minute long exams that you are able to take at home.
AP US History: Units 1-7
AP US Government & Politics: Units 1-3
Since we reached these benchmarks in each of my classes, we will be reviewing this content for the rest of the year. They are also going to publish a schedule of review videos and lectures by AP teachers from all over the country.
Since the redesign, AP now requires a significant project that involved political science research and/or applied civics.
Our class will be hosting the first ever Soldotna High Policy Forum on April 1, 2021.
See the Policy Forum page for event details and for the program. It will be filled out at we complete the project.
I have done my best to correlate the chapters in the Wilson text (14th edition) to the units in the course and exam redesign. These are the chapters that we will read each unit. It's messy, and it's also a work in progress. This is subject to change as is needed.
