Required Summer Assignment: AP U.S. History
Teachers: Stella Lindsey & Daniel Parrish
The summer reading and writing assignments are due on the 1st day of class (August 10th) and quizzes on the reading material will begin later that week. You will be allowed to refer to your completed guided readings during the quizzes. The two guides and chapter quizzes on the material will be the first grades recorded for the semester.
Download and read chapters 1-2 in AMSCO. Print and complete the guided reading for each chapter:
All work should be handwritten. These sample pages from student guides may be used as a model while taking notes.
Minimal effort will not receive full credit. While completing these guides, remember that the more information you provide, the more context (background information) you will build. Background knowledge is crucial in APUSH, especially as it relates to developing a thesis statement and beginning the writing process.
The assignments are due the first week of school and will be recorded as quiz grades.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email us about the assignments or the course in general. We look forward to working with each of you next year. Have a great summer!
