I have 32 years of teaching experience, 25 of which is teaching secondary social studies. I have been teaching World History for 20 years and more specifically, AP World History for 7 years. I also attended the week-long APSI training (Summer Institute put on by the College Board) for both AP World History and AP Psychology. I have access to the College Board resources and attend regular professional development sessions. I have been offering 1:1 tutoring in AP World History over Outschool for the past year and teach a DBQ Essay (a requirement on the AP exam) review class that has a 5-star rating and has been attended by 50 learners.
Approximately 25 pages of reading will be assigned each week. In addition, students will be expected to answer practice multiple choice questions and write answers to 3-6 short answer questions.
Students are encouraged to purchase a recent review book: Princeton, 5 Steps to a 5, Barrons, OR AMSCO Advanced Placement World History Modern (1200-present). I strongly recommend the AMSCO book, as I can provide page numbers that correspond to the content.
Students will be assessed on multiple-choice completion. Written responses will be graded based on the college board rubric for SAQs. Students will be given written feedback to strive for mastery of the content and skills.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
OER Project will be used for supplemental reading and links to some videos for enrichment. Google Forms will be used for assessment. Students need only enter their first name.
