As you read the chapter, you will need to complete an "Article Analysis Sheet." There will be a quiz over the reading the next day. Enjoy.


Hey, guys. Welcome to a new class year and welcome to my APUSH blog. Here you will find everything you need to be successful in the course. This blog will contain all of the assignments and the weekly schedules for AP United States History. In addition, in the right-hand column you will also find some interesting links that may make your APUSH experience a little easier. Remember the goal: the AP test in May. That may seem like a long way off---but it will come sooner than you realize.

Here's to a great year!
