Welcome to DC/APUSH, comrades in arms! While this college class is definately a new experience for your student, it is, in many cases, as much an eye-opener for parents and guardians. This page is designed to present the tenents of the class: its requirements, character, and nuances. Please take a few monents to familiarize yourself with the class; with this information I hope to answer as many questions as possible. However, this page has informational limitations, so please do not hesitate to contact me.
I depend heavily on you, my parents/guardians, as the first line of mobilization and support for DC/APUSH. It is by NO MEANS an easy class; consequently it requires a different instructional dynamic that typical high school classes. It is incumbent on my part to give you a head's up on two non-negotiable requisites that tend to give students trouble:
1) THIS IS A READING INTENSIVE CLASS. Students should prepare to read and master college-level material every week.
2) THIS IS A WRITING INTENSIVE CLASS. Students will be expected to be able to write analytical papers at a college level.
It is my intention to keep you informed with class progress, policy changes, etc. as much as possible. This page is a starting point.
Thank you again for allowing me the priviledge of introducing your child to college. It is a responsibility which I take seriously, and I hope that we can partner to ensure an enjoyable and fruitful learning experience.
