Spring Break Review Plan
Here are some suggestions for review during Spring Break:
- If you haven't started working through your review book yet, get going! Take a practice test! Look at a period that you are especially unfamiliar with.
- Watch some videos! Check out the 8 week review plan (full 9 periods of videos here), Jocz review videos, Thematic Reviews, and Gilder Lehrman period reviews Here is a period 9 specific video---there will be a live review on Thursday, May 4th
- Outline some essays! From the woman who created our Guided Reading packets---MAJOR essay and thematic review. Choose a theme, she lists previous essay prompts and then goes on to ask questions and provide charts and other information to help you to answer potential essay questions. OR Review LEQ's using Albert.io's LEQ Generator. You can time yourself writing an essay in 35 minutes.
- Practice some multiple choice! You can go through your review book, AMSCO, or check out Albert.io
- Review flash cards- Check out the links below. They will help with all parts of the exam---good for specific factual information!
- Review specific facts and whatnot- Official APUSH Cram Packet (laws, cases, people, foreign policy and more), Supreme Court (scroll down to the Supreme Court section. You can check out quizlet and videos that I made for regular US to get you started on the most important cases you need to know). A more complete quizlet for APUSH is here. You could also go over some of the MCM/WCW's from throughout the year. The database is here.
- Listen to some podcasts! If you want to review a specific topic and listening is more your jam---try out a podcast. Here are two that I recommend: Backstory- This is a podcast that "brings historical perspective to the events happening around us today". Basically, it is chock full of SYNTHESIS! Stuff You Missed in History Class- This podcast delves in detail into specific topics in history.
- I was chatting about this nifty site in class the other day--check it out: forUS , another one to check out is Apprend.io - it has nifty timelines and essay advice.
