AP World History Twitter Chat!

Hey, guys– I neglected to bring this up in class today, but I wanted to make sure that you were all aware that there is going to be another AP World History Twitter chat tonight from 8:00 PM until 9:00 PM.  To join the chat, just use #APWorldCobb to address your questions about content, essays, and exam preparation to Cobb AP World teachers as well as a few special guests.

We’re lucky enough to have the Great Khan of AP World History, Bill Strickland, participating in tonight’s chat.  As students, you probably don’t know anything about him, but he’s an absolute rock star among AP World History teachers.  A good two thirds of everything I know about teaching this course, I learned from Mr. Strickland.  He’s an absolute gold mine of information on anything you can think of relating to World History, so please take advantage of the opportunity!


Unit Two Test Tomorrow!

First things first: there is a county-wide AP World History twitter chat scheduled for tonight starting at 8:00 PM; if you have questions about studying for the AP exam, content relating to this (or any other) unit, the essays, or anything else AP World History-related, please feel free to check out the hashtag #APWORLDCobb starting tonight at 8:00 PM EST.  The primary account is @CobbAPWorldHistory, if you would like to ask a direct question.  I’ll be there along with a number of other AP World teachers from the county to answer any questions you have– you’ll see me on the chat as @GallowayAPWorld.

(A note regarding my social media policy: I do not follow students currently enrolled in high school on any platform.  The above twitter account is for the purpose of these academic chats only, and I will not be using it for anything outside of those concerns.  You’re free to follow that account, but I will not follow you back.  Turn eighteen, graduate, and then we can revisit the issue.)

As to your preparation for tomorrow’s test– remember that cramming does more harm than good, and make sure to go to bed at a decent hour.  If you couldn’t make the study session today after school, remember to check out the Unit Two resources page for the review podcast.  You’ll also find the relevant Crash Course videos and some primary source documents that you might possible see on the test.  We’ll be doing some clean up of Mesoamerica on Monday, so you can expect the test to go easy on the Americas this time around, although I will likely have a question or two in there just to make sure you did the reading.

See you tomorrow!
