APUSH SKILL BUILDING WORKBOOKS
These workbooks help students build the skills, master the content, and develop test-taking strategies to be ready to get a 5 on the AP US History Exam. These booklets are amazing apush test practice and give guided support and tips on how to write the DBQ, the SAQ, write thesis statements and master the MCQ (multiple choice questions) while gaining mastery of the essential content for all nine periods of AP US History.
What They Include
These AP US History booklets have one purpose- to make students successful and prepare them for the AP exam. This bundle scaffolds skills from one period to the next so students can learn to write DBQs effectively, master the SAQ, build historical thinking skills, clear up misconceptions, and learn where many students make mistakes. These 16-page booklets (except for periods one and nine which are 14) focus on the most important terms and themes of each period so the complexity of the course becomes more clear and easier to retain.
Each booklet builds on the skills and content knowledge from the previous one and ensures students have the historical thinking skills needed for APUSH- comparison, comparison, contextualization, chronological reasoning, cause and effect, and change and continuity over time. Students practice thesis writing with suggested sentence frames, mini-DBQs, SAQS (short answer questions), timelines, and get test-taking tips for the multiple-choice. It also allows students to reflect on what they learned and where they struggled, while also having some fun making memes for the most commonly misunderstood concepts.
I am a veteran APUSH teacher and I include all the tools for success that I have been able to teach my students in my 10 years of teaching APUSH into these booklets. I wholeheartedly stand by them and guarantee it helps build your students' confidence for the test.
The booklets allows for creativity and artistic expression while being both rigorous and approachable. Best of all, these books work with any textbook and serve as excellent reviews for the AP exam in May.
