Maps and Planners For AP United State History

My students need student planners and notebook atlases.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like when you entered college and felt the pressure of work crushing you? Chances are you had access to advanced classes. Yet you still felt challenged! For most of my students, the pressure is greater as they barely have access to the AP opportunities you may have had.

My students are wonderful characters as you can see from their picture, albeit their faces cannot be shown for legal reasons.

We are a small public high school in New York with about 600 students. We are unique because we are a full inclusion school meaning our students with special needs are fully integrated into all of our classes. Our population includes many students who are English Language Learners or former English Language Learners. Students really care about each other and have interactions that are pretty rare in any school. Our school size makes it very tough to offer advanced classes. Some students take the challenge of Advanced Placement United States History. Their success usually leads them to take the one or two other Advanced Placement Classes the school offers.

My Project

We are asking for a class set of student planners along with reference atlases for our class. As mentioned, students have quite a challenge when they take the plunge into the waters of Advanced Placement United States History and Government. They go from their regular classes with high school expectations to a six credit college class. Even more challenging than the academic expectations is the balancing act that survival in the class requires. One would think that academic planners are basic to high school students; however, most of our students have not developed the proper organization habits yet even though they are being afforded a chance at an AP class. In addition, students find the constant referencing of different information confusing. An easy binder reference will help the students have much necessary information at their fingertips.

Your donation will empower students organize themselves to master material they find challenging.

The AP United States History Exam expects students to have a qualitative and quantitative understanding of our country's past. With these organizers and atlases, my students will have a better chance at success in college, which is, in truth, priceless.
