Extra credit film review due by the end of the day.  Be sure to return textbooks, review books, and review book keys.

Ammon and Xing still need to return the final exemption form.

That’s it!  The school year is done except for finals!  It has been a pleasure (mostly).  I hope that you feel more knowledgeable and more capable now than at the beginning (no matter what you may score on the AP exam)!

APUSH Film Festival continues. . .

Film reviews for C.S.A. and King of the Hill are due on Friday at Turnitin.com.  Answer the following questions:

  • What was the purpose of the film?
  • How well was the purpose achieved?
  • To what audience(s) would you recommend this film?

You will want to include examples from the films to illustrate your points.  Not more than 750 words, but probably not less than 400 words will be necessary to adequately address these questions.

All w.i.p.s, missing DBQs, quiz re-takes will need to be done by this Friday!
