mp ap

my teacher for ap world gave us a study assignment to make a powerpoint for (almost) every chapter of every unit. we have our own book that we use so im not sure if the chapters align to the books most schools use but the content should be the same

i will be updating this weekly when i can to add the powerpoints i just made, but please be patient! these take a lot of time but i really want to help other people succeed. 

the powerpoints include important points from each section and subsection, as well as an overview of the main topic for each section, as well as a top ten things to remember slide for every chapter.

i hope this helps!

Well, you will have to try a little bit. Here are some tips I wish someone told me before I started high school.

1. Read the text

Maybe this sounds like a given, but you still wouldn’t believe the amount of people I know who avoid reading the assigned material like it is the plague. Whether you’re avoiding it because you think the text is too hard, too easy, or you just don’t think you have the time, familiarizing yourself with the text is critical, especially in honors and AP English classes. While reading may seem time consuming, it definitely pays off. Because you read the assigned reading you are prepared to discuss it in class, take pop quizzes those English teachers love, or ask questions on things you read that you don’t understand. Not to mention being familiar with the text makes it easier when you have to write essays and take quizzes/tests.

2. Use sources such as Sparknotes, Shmoop, etc. as resources, not replacements

I know those summaries and analyses sound so tempting when you want to avoid reading. These sources are AWESOME…as resources, not as a replacement for your reading. Like I said in the previous point, reading and familiarizing yourself is essential if you want to fully understand the text in order to write the best essay you can or do your best on a test/quiz, but don’t shy away from these online resources. While the only place you can find all the answers is in the actual text, these websites for the most part, highlight important plot points. Me personally, I like to read either the sparknotes or shmoop summary (if there is one) before I read an assignment so I understand what I’m looking for to happen in the text. Then after I read, I read the analysis. They are also helpful to read before taking a test or writing an essay as a quick refresher. These online sources are great for helping you grasp the meaning of the text, but use them in addition to your assignments.

3. Annotate…but not too much

Annotating is great way to take good notes and remember important parts of the text, but when not done properly can waste your time and highlighter ink. If you underline or highlight everything, then nothing stands out as important. A good rule is if you highlight something, force yourself to write down what about it is important. If you can’t do that, odds are it’s not that important. There is no specific right way to annotate, some people look for importance in every line, while others try to focus on the big picture. As a reader, you will develop your own method of annotating. Personally, I find it helpful to annotate inside and outside of class. I like to underline parts I don’t understand and then ask about them in class so I can add some notes in after. 

4. Don’t be afraid to jump into a class discussion

Class discussions give you an opportunity to gain new perspectives and understand the text better as a whole. Hearing how others interpret the text contributes to your understanding of the text and could come in handy later when you have to write an essay. In addition to listening to others, don’t be afraid to talk about things you realized or found interesting/important. In the same vein, don’t hesitate when asking questions. If you didn’t understand something, odds there are others who didn’t either. Asking questions not only helps you grasp the meaning of the text, but it also shows your teacher that you are a engaged student who is trying to do their best. 

5. Know your teacher

I can’t stress this enough, knowing your teacher and how he or she grades or what he or she is looking for is crucial to your grade and your success in that class. If you don’t do as well as you hoped on the first couple essays, ask your teacher if you can go over it with them. Almost all English assignments are subjective, so no matter how great you think your essay is, your grade is based on how great your teacher thinks it is. Building a relationship with your English teacher not only comes in handy when you have them for class, but it’s also helpful for the future when you need feedback on college essays, job applications, or other essays.

6. Don’t wait until the last minute

We all have that friend who always writes their essay at 12:30am the night before and is totally happy with the average grade they receive. If you can’t think of someone who does that odds are you have some punctual friends, or that person is you. When you write your essays even a couple days or a week or so before the deadline, you can continue to get it proofread and make revisions. If your teacher wanted to see how well you can write an essay in one night, they wouldn’t have given you the ample time of a couple days/weeks to write it. Accept that the writing process is something that shouldn’t be compressed into one night, getting your work done ahead of time will give you a better grade and a better night of sleep.

7. Find people to read your paper

Find your mom, your dad, your brother, your sister, your cousin, your friend, your coach your classmate, your anyone to read your paper. Having someone who isn’t you reading your paper gives you a new perspective on your paper. Most people find it difficult to criticize or praise their own work, so find other people to tell you how it really is. If your teacher is willing to proofread it, give it to them, having them read it is like them pre-grading it. Part of becoming a good writer is accepting the fact that you aren’t a perfect writer and recognizing that other people can contribute their opinion to help shape your work for the better.
