AP US History II and Honors-Level US I/ B-Level US I

  • Welcome to Mr. Funari's Classes.  

    AP US History II  / Honors-Level US History I  /  B-Level US History I

    Action Plan for the Future: 

    All the work, for all three levels, have been handed out either prior to being out, or will be during the time out via Google Classroom, Remind 101, Newsela,and Powerschool.  Aslo, students are encourged when necesary to first use their district provided and issued textbooks at home first for assignments  before using outside resources.  All Newsela quizzes for the US I sections will be counted as either Summative or Formative Assessments.  While uploaded or collected upon return Guided Reading and Notes will count as an Independent assessment.  The APUSH sections will be assessed by uploading their PEDLIGS for a Formative assessment, and take the online Progress checks for Independent and Formative assessments, while the Unit Quizzes will count as a Summative.  

     All Powerpoints and resources can be found here under The Classroom Resource Tab, or on Google Classroom. 

    Google Classroom Codes and assignments:

     Special Announcement from AP: PLease log on to Google Classroom to complete the APUSH Technology Survey.

    Students remain eager to take AP Exams and to have a chance to earn credit and placement. We surveyed 18,000 AP students and 91% indicated they want to complete this important step, urging us not to cancel this opportunity they have been working toward. We’ll continue to support students with free resources through exam day. 

    The AP Program will invest heavily over the next month in the following ways:

    • For the 2019–20 exam administration only, students can take a 45-minute online exam at home. Educator-led development committees are currently selecting the exam questions that will be administered.
    • AP curricula are locally developed and we defer to local decisions on how best to help students complete coursework. To be fair to all students, some of whom have lost more instructional time than others, the exam will only include topics and skills most AP teachers and students have already covered in class by early March.
    • Colleges support this solution and are committed to ensuring that AP students receive the credit they have worked this year to earn. For decades, colleges have accepted a shortened AP Exam for college credit when groups of students have experienced emergencies.
    • Students will be able to take these streamlined exams on any device they have access to—computer, tablet, or smartphone. Taking a photo of handwritten work will also be an option.
    • We recognize that the digital divide could prevent some low-income and rural students from participating. Working with partners, we will invest so that these students have the tools and connectivity they need to review AP content online and take the exam. If your students need mobile tools or connectivity, you can reach out to us directly to let us know.

    1.  

    Read the directions of the project. Come up with a song or medley of songs, and put it to a slide -show of images and or film clips to convey the message you want your audience to get from your presentation. Your objective is to create an audio and visual presentation about some aspect of US History that you believe is important enough to make an audio and visual comment on. Try to take on an issue or interest that you really enjoy and be as creative and imaginative as possible. The suggestions listed are just a starting point. If you have a particular topic or set of issues that are not mentioned and would like to do, email me and we can see if it's appropriate. You are being graded for a summative on the written part, which must explain the song or songs used, along with why you chose those images to go along with the music, and why that topic or issue is important to you and should be to everyone. You are also being graded a separate summative grade for the actual presentation that you will upload to Google Classroom on the final due date of June 12th. I will have a Google Meet on Wednesday, May 27 @ 2pm answering any questions that anyone might have about the final project. Also, feel free to email me with any concerns regarding the project. Take today and think about possible songs and issues, and make sure to attend the meeting tomorrow afternoon if possible.
