Daily log for Ms. Cox's social studies classes.

APEH:

Two weeks til your summer homework is due!  Keep working, and email me if you get stuck.

Remember to focus on big themes.  What economic changes were underway in the 14th century?  How was political authority changing?  What new ideas were emerging about the role of man in society?  Try to fit each fact into a bigger picture of a rapidly changing society.

APEH:

I hope you have gotten started on the summer assignment. Feel free to email me if you encounter a problem or need some advice. 

Read carefully, and don't assume that you know the answers to any questions.  The culture and politics of the early modern period were quite different from today!  This is the time period when modern ways of life/thought were just starting to emerge.

APEH Summer Assignment:

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TTTAcG-FoqkHDvs3JqcFHwi2ToBTGdu-DGXirOyGu4k/edit?usp=sharing

Please follow the instructions carefully.  Your work is due by noon on July 27th.  This is the last day of summer school, and after that it will be difficult for you to get into the building to drop off your work.

Get started right away!  It's a lot of work, and the questions require thoughtful answers.  Don't procrastinate until it is too late to do a good job.

Feel free to email me with questions about the assignment.  I'll be happy to help.

If you decide during the summer that you will be dropping APEH, please inform the summer counselor, Ms He.  Let me know as well, so that someone from the wait list can be added. 

See you in August!

APEH Summer Assignment: 

https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TTTAcG-FoqkHDvs3JqcFHwi2ToBTGdu-DGXirOyGu4k/edit?usp=sharing

Please note that if you have been enrolled into APEH, you will receive an acceptance notice from me. If you received a textbook notice, but you were on the waiting list, you are not enrolled in APEH at this point. So far, there have been very few drops from the class, so it's not likely that more students will be admitted from the wait list.

US History:
1. If you didn't finish your Venn diagram comparing/contrasting MLK Jr and Malcolm X, you should have it ready for a stamp on Friday.

EL World History:
Congratulations on finishing your essay!  No homework.

APEH:
Please return your textbooks as soon as possible.
Don't forget that your school google account will be deleted after graduation. Move anything you want to keep to another storage site or you will permanently lose access to it in June.
