Mr. Scott Markowitz « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

I hope you are having a great summer. Please see below for the list of supplies needed for the 2014-2015 school year.

Required Supplies (these will be used in class everyday):

  • 3 Ring Binder 2 to 3 in. (May be shared with other classes)
  • Pens (blue or black ink only)
  • #2 Pencils
  • Loose Leaf College Ruled Paper
  • Flash Drive (can be shared with other classes)

Additional Supplies:  (these will be turned in the first week of school for whole classroom use)

  • 1 pack of colored pencils (girls)
  • 1 container of Lysol or Clorox Wipes (girls)
  • 1 bottle of Germ-X or Purell (boys)
  • 1 pack of Crayola fine tip markers (boys)
  • 1 pack of highlighters (assorted colors)
  • 1 pack of index cards  (3x5)  100 Count

For those who would like to get a head start on history over the summer, I recommend (but do not require) the following books:

Salt: A World History (Kurlansky)

A History of the World in 6 Glasses  (Standage) 

Guns, Germs, and Steel: The Fates of Human Societies  (Diamond)  

or even World History For Dummies (Haugen) or Cartoon History of the Universe and Cartoon History of the Modern World (Gonick)

Prior students have recommended the following as study aids to keep all the material straight in the minds, as well as a useful review both for in-class exams and the AP Exam. I have not used all of these and can not personally endorse them, but students have.

Barron's AP World History, 6th Edition

Barron's AP World History Flash Cards

Cracking the AP World History Exam

AP World History Crash Course

5 Steps to a 5 AP World History

Another good resource is the "Crash Course in World History" youtube series.
