Ms. Ellen Peters « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

September 2014:  Please read the information on this monthís topics of study for my classes below.

 

U.S. History- We will examine the political and economic developments of the years following the Civil War, and how the development of industry and growth of immigration leads into the Gilded Age.  We will analyze how the concepts of Manifest Destiny and Turnerís Frontier Thesis shaped population movements and American industry during this period.  We will also trace the ways in which policies of the Gilded Age inspired the Populist and Progressive Movement s of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

 We will have quizzes at the end of each chapter, and a unit test at the end of chapter 9.  There will also be an in-class writing assessment based on expansionism in the 19th century.

Please check Teacher Connection for assignments and due dates.

 

AP U.S. History- We will be studying Chapters 5-8 this month, which cover the years 1700-1800.  As we examine this period, students will trace the beginnings of a uniquely American culture that develops independently from the colonistsí role as British citizens.  We will also delve into the events of the American Revolution and the political development of our nation after the war.

We will write a DBQ and continue work on an FRQ for Unit 1 (Chapters 1-5).  We will also have a unit test after Ch. 5.

We will have quizzes for each chapter on a weekly/bi-weekly basis, dependent upon chapter material.  Please check Teacher Connection for weekly reading assignments and assessment dates. 

I am available every day before and after school for help and review.

AP reviews for tests and quizzes are held Thursday after school.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
