Ms. Ellen Peters « Teacher Connection / Documents / Calendar

August 2015:  Please read the information on this month’s topics of study for my classes below.

 

U.S. History- We will begin our course of study with a brief review of the Civil War followed by an examination of Reconstruction efforts.  We will analyze the lasting social, political and economic effects of this conflict, and trace the development of the regionalism that followed. By the end of the first unit, students should understand how the Civil War and Reconstruction shaped the Civil Rights struggle over the next century.

 We will have end of chapter quizzes for Ch. 4 and 5, and a Unit assessment covering both chapters 5 and 6.

We will be completing an in-class Civil War Project that will segue into a discussion about the impact of the Civil War on ordinary citizens, as well as its wider implications for American politics and society. 

Please check Teacher Connection for assignments and due dates.

 

AP U.S. History- We will be studying Chapters 1-4 this month, which cover the years 1492-1770.  As we examine this era, students will be able to analyze the progress and effectiveness of colonization efforts by the European superpowers.  They will also trace the beginnings of a uniquely American culture that develops independently from the colonists’ role as British citizens.  Politically, we will analyze regional differences as they lead to the American Revolution.

We will begin to formulate strategies for the DBQ and LEQ sections of the APUSH exam by practicing writing thesis statements.

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.

I look forward to an exciting year of learning with your childrenJ  Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns.
