I have just posted the fourth nine weeks schedule and the final assignment/project for the year on the AP US History course website.

This is for all seniors in IB history and juniors who are testing out SL this year. I absolutely must see all of you by tomorrow. I have the internal assessment cover sheets for you to sign for the sample that will be sent off, which I am submitting tomorrow. I realize some students will be absent for psychology tomorrow, so please see me after school today or tomorrow morning before school.
I have updated the instructions for submission of the senior Internal Assessment, after a student pointed out a discrepancy between what was said in class versus what was on the paper. The IA is due by 7:30 am tomorrow morning!
Juniors! I have just posted the rubric and instructions for submitting the first draft internal assessment on my course website. It is the document titled “Internal Assessment First Draft Instructions.”
As a reminder, the draft is due in hard copy by 7:30am on Friday, 11 January. It is also due as an electronic copy by midnight of the due date. This is a very significant grade for the nine weeks, and failure to submit a draft will guarantee a failing grade for the term.
I have uploaded the detailed third nine week schedules for all classes (AP US History, IB Contemporary History, and IB History of the Americas) on my class websites. I have also posted updated and revised History Book Club instructions. I will be holding to the deadline to acquire the books strictly this term, since neither selection is in the public domain and both are lengthy books, you will need adequate time to purchase or borrow these texts in order to read them thoroughly.
IB history students will also find the first term lists and reading questions for the third nine weeks on the class websites. It is going to be a hectic term, so you might want to get started on these over the break. I will have the reading questions for John Lewis Gaddis’s The Cold War: A New History on the website by the middle of next week. Bear in mind that this is required reading for all IB junior and senior history students, just like the MacMillan book last semester.
Of special interest to seniors, I have uploaded the PowerPoint presentation of the internal assessment debriefing I will be giving upon our return to school on 7 January.
Due to the fact that we have not had time to adequately cover academic honesty and referencing, the first draft of the IA will be due the week you return from the winter break. The new due date is Thursday, 10 January. This will be the final alteration to the deadline.
Seniors, don’t forget that your draft CAS binders are due on Monday, 10 December. These need to be as complete as possible, so that Mrs. Kraft and I can accurately identify where you are in your progress toward completion and give you the most helpful advice. See the CAS Handbook on my course website for details of what should be in the binder, and in what order. It is imperative that we have your binders this week, and slug lists and conferences with myself, Mrs. Kraft, and Dr. Williams if necessary will be applied vigorously in cases of dereliction.
