Our Trimester Exam was a scaled-down test and the Short Answer questions were not in the same format as the actual APWH Exam. My hope is that most of you found it a bit easier than the first time around, but at the same time we need to get back to preparing for the real thing.
I'll be here Monday and Tuesday after school from 3:00 - 4:00. If you wish to come in and work on one of those days, and if you arrive on time and stay until dismissed, and if you use the time well, I will accept ONE late assignment or redo from you from any time this trimester at no late penalty.
If you wish to stay both days, you may submit one for each day.
HIPPO / Document Analysis - There are still document options posted to the Agenda (look on weekend slots). You can turn these in as late as the day you take the Trimester Exam, but keep in mind that if there are problems with your work there will be zero time left to discuss or correct it. Feel free to come in BEFORE then before or after school to discuss, but arrive prepared - DO THE PARTS YOU CAN DO, then come ask for help.
There are several unavoidable realities of AP World, and one of the unavoidable-est is that the pace simply does. not. slow. down.
If you missed one or both parts of the big ol' scary tests we took this week (due to an EXCUSED ABSENCE), you may take a make-up version during these blocks:
Monday (10/2/17) 3:00 - 4:00 pm
Tuesday (10/3/17) 3:00 - 4:00 pm
Wednesday (10/4/17) 6:45 - 7:45 am
If you do not take advantage of one of these times or make other arrangements prior to these, you'll receive a zero for whatever you've missed. See me with any questions.
From here forward, you may safely assume that you are responsible for all material in your textbook and in the required viewing videos, in addition to whatever we cover in class. I'll try to give you a general idea of what chapters you should be on and I'll check your DJs from time to time, but it's time to put on our AP Pants and HANDLE IT.
Well, it looks like most of your teachers are using Google Classroom, and that it's a format with which you are comfortable. So, partly to make things easier for you, and partly to eliminate any excuses for not knowing what's going on or how to access information and materials for this class, I'm going to start posting assignments and announcments to GC as well as putting them here.
The Classroom is the same for all sections this 2017-2018 school year. It's called - get this - "Mr. Koehn's Classroom" and you can get the Class Code from me in class or by emailing me.
The fact that you're reading this means you've successfully reached the Class Website for Mr. Koehn's AP World History class. So, congrats. (Don't get TOO excited - you don't get a sticker or anything.)
This site will maintain a running agenda of work we do in class, including reminders and due dates and copies of anything copy-able we use. There will be links to helpful videos and other sources of information, along with periodic announcements intended to help you stay on track along the way.
