We have an exciting day ahead of us tomorrow, and tonight is your last big push. Take tonight to read over the Key Concepts and Key Terms from the review Packet. Look over the key events I gave you the other day (Turning Points/Periodization). Maybe even check out Paul Sargent's live review session on youtube. *Bonus Idea: Type in APEH into Quizlet.com * Tomorrow morning (If you aren't taking APUSH) look them over again. You can do this.
Yesterday, when I was running the practice exam, I had a thought as I was giving the 10 minute warning. It's those last ten minutes that could make the difference between a 1,2,3,4, or 5. Wouldn't you be disappointed in yourself if you wasted those 10 minutes and fell short of your goal? Use them. Keep pen to paper and get all of the points you can. In those last ten minutes add whatever synthesis, context, POV, or outside information you can to your DBQ and LEQ. Utilize whatever "extra" time and space you think you have to put down relevant information before time is called, not just for the essays, but the SAQs as well. I realize that sometimes our AP classes can push you to the verge of breaking, but know that the moment you finish that exam, you're done. We aren't pushing ourselves any more after that. Make certain you have earned that rest.
Don't forget about the art review, but here are a few videos as well:
Rapid Review PowerPoint
This is the Rapid Review PowerPoint I have had playing in power hour that is based on the five steps to a five book. If you need expansion of any of the ideas in the PowerPoint, I recommend you use the resources on the site, or a review book (like 5 Steps to a 5).
Also, and this is incredibly important, your exam begins between noon and 1:00. That means it's probably going to be pushing 4:00 PM when you finish. If you don't drive, make certain you have made arrangements. I will probably be in my room reviewing with the AP World History kids until 4:15ish if you want to stop by to fist bump me.
