My Students

My students are independent thinkers, active readers, and knowledge seekers. A typical day in my classroom involves primary document analysis and classroom discussions on point of view and document significance in historical argumentation.

My AP students are some of the most hardworking individuals that I have ever had the pleasure of teaching.

Last year I taught United States History and challenged my students with AP level work in preparation for this year. All of my AP World History students are leaders and high academic achievers at the school, and are ready to be challenged with college level work. The majority of my students are from low socioeconomic background and do not have the ability to purchase test prep resources. We are fortunate to be at a school that provides for student's essential and immediate needs, however, additional resources such as individual test prep books are left for students to purchase. My goal is to ensure that 100% of my students get these resources, and that no student is left without their own book.

My Project

Students will use their review books on a daily basis to create individualized study plans in preparation for the AP Exam. In addition, my students will have the opportunity to explore online resources included with the AP review books in order to study outside of the classroom. In the classroom, we will have test prep days scheduled into the academic calendar in which the review books will be used to familiarize students with testing strategies that will help them during the test. Taking the diagnostic test and practice tests will be the most beneficial and transformative for my students. I plan on keeping detailed records of student performance and growth, so that my students can visualize their progress and gain confidence in themselves. I foresee 100% of my students achieving significant growth, which will become evident in a post test and practice AP test in April.

These materials will completely change the game for my students.

This is the second year that our students will be interacting with rigorous college level material, and my goal is to give my students the tools that will allow them to be successful. Our class goal is to have 100% passing rate on the AP World History Exam, and students scoring a 3 or above will pave the way for future success with AP at our school.
