Transcription

1 Dear APUSH Students, I would like to congratulate you on your decision to take on the incredibly challenging and rewarding journey that is Advance Placement United States History. The process of exploring the history of the America and preparing for the national exam is an exciting and daunting one. In this course, students are expected to participate on a high academic level, interpret and analyze both primary and secondary sources, make historical interpretation and be able to use historical facts to defend their views, and present their opinions in a clear, concise and orderly fashion in both an oral and written manner. I believe that you will find this experience a rewarding one and, based on your efforts, you will be successful. The first step on the APUSH path is the summer assignment. This summer assignment is designed to prepare you for the rigors of a college level course. This is given not as a punishment or as busy work, but rather to begin the long process of preparing for the national exam. The assignment is broken into two parts: Part I requires you to read the book, Devil in the White City by Erik Larson. This is a really fun and scary book that tells the story of both the 1893 World s Fair in Chicago and a serial killer who preyed on those visiting the fair. This book is an example of how exciting history can be. It also provides a great background for understanding the many facets of American society at the turn of the century. Part II is a textbook reading assignment. You will read the first four chapters of The American Pageant: A History of the Republic. Attached is a list of key terms, concepts, and historical figures to guide your reading and note taking. On Tuesday, September 3, 2013 there will be a test based on these chapter readings. (You will need to pickup a textbook in order to do this.) More detailed directions for both of these assignments follow below. Have fun this summer and I hope you enjoy working on your summer assignment. Please do not procrastinate. This is a job that is impossible to do well if left to the last minute. If you have any questions, please contact me at Please note, that I do not check my daily during the summer months. Take care, Mrs. Holodnick Assignment Details Part I: Read The Devil in the White City by Erik Larsen and write a word typed book review. Here are some suggested questions you might answer in your paper. You are not, however, limited to just these questions. What is the author s overriding thesis? How does he prove his thesis? Does he explain why detractors from his thesis are incorrect or weak arguments? NOTE: The thesis may not be a sentence clearly established in the opening of the book. You may have to think about this. Discuss the author s use of evidence to prove his thesis. Does the author have a bias? If so, explain. Write two thoughtful questions you would ask the author about his work. Why these questions? What other observations/insights do you have?

2 Part II: ID and Short Answer Questions Instructions: Indentify, describe, and state the historical significance of the sets of words. Id s should include the following information: the who or what of the term, when it occurred (dates), where it occurred and why it was significant (importance). Note: This must be hand-written unless you have accommodations on record. (I will not accept work that is typed or illegible.) Example: Theodore Roosevelt: 26th President of the U.S. from Roosevelt is considered the first modern president and the first of the progressive presidents known for bringing about many reforms. He is also well known for his foreign policy. Short Answer: Answer each of the short-answer questions with a one paragraph, 2-3 sentence response that reflects analysis of the question and appropriate historical evidence.
