For students who are interested in having me write a letter of recommendation for college applications, please read the following instructions. If you do not submit all the required materials within your email, your request will not be considered. The evaluation process will be largely based on the following categories: academic integrity, classroom etiquette and academic performance. All requests will be due by April 20, 2018 – there will be no extensions.
I will send an email reply to students that meet the qualifications, follow the requirements and are selected. If you do not receive an email response by May 14, 2018, you are not on my list to receive a college recommendation letter. I will cap my list at 35 students.
Here is the schedule for the No Bull APUSH Review quizzes. There will be NO notes, or any resource, allowed to be used during these quizzes. Students will be expected to have reviewed and retained the important information from the requisite sections of the review book.
Students have the option of watching one of the films below and completing the corresponding film questions for up to 5 bonus points for the Unit 9 Exam. Schindler's List will count for up to 7 bonus points.
