** Please check under "Distance Learning Resources" for important updates and resources **
The AP exam has been rescheduled for May 21st at 2pm. You will have 45 minutes to write a modified DBQ (5 documents). Please check email or the 4-3-20 update for additional important details.

 Dear Students,

I hope you are all doing well - physically, mentally, and emotionally! This is a difficult time for all of us, but I believe that if we try, we can usually find the "silver linings" in every situation. I hope you are spending quality time with your family, getting outside, and getting plenty of sleep while school is closed!

I will be posting a list of your weekly assignments right here on this website. Graded assignments will also be posted to StudentVUE and can be turned in via dropbox. All assignments for the week will be "due" by Sunday at 11:59 PM. However, I encourage you to pace out the work and attempt to do at least one task per day.

Additional resources can be found under the unit folders (ex: "World Wars"). I encourage you to peruse my PowerPoints on each topic. Please email me at lsexton@rcps.info if you have any further questions or concerns. Also please join the class remind account by using the code @cb8cb2 on the app or texting the code to 81010. 

Thanks,

Ms. Sexton

Assignments for Week of 3/30 to 4/3. All due by Sunday 4/5 at 11:59 PM: 

1. Go to the bus loop at P.H. between 12 and 1 and get the AP lockdown browser downloaded onto your laptop.

2. Log in to your AP account at https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/. Complete the assignment entitled "Unit 1 Progress Check MCQ." This is a completion grade.

*** Due to the inability to get the lockdown browser downloaded due to building closure, your NEW assignment is to go to StudentVUE and complete the Unit 1 PowerPoint assignment. You will need to download the PowerPoint, read through the slides and listen to Mrs. Huffman's commentary. Then you will need to copy and paste pictures into each slide illustrating the key concept. When finished, save and upload via dropbox. 

3. Write me a letter letting me know how you have been doing the last two weeks and your thoughts on the coronavirus pandemic. Please be as detailed as you feel comfortable.
- I would like to know what you have been doing with your time, how you have been doing (physically, mentally, emotionally), what you miss/ what has disappointed you, but also what "silver linings" you have found. Have there been any positives for you during this crisis?
- While my main purpose in having you do this is to check in on you, my other purpose is to have you create a first-hand account of life in the time of quarantine. A historian a hundred years from now might use your letter as a primary source. With that in mind, what have been your observations so far about the pandemic? How have people responded (you, your family, your community, society, the U.S.)? What other things have you noticed? What has troubled and/or inspired you? How do you think this whole thing will end?
- Type up in a word document and email to me at lsexton@rcps.info. Minimum 1 page typed, single spaced.
