AP Government and Politics

Ms. Donnelly

Dear Parents,

As the week comes to a close, I wanted to touch base with everyone and let you know that the students will have their first test next week on Friday. The exam will contain 20 AP style questions with 1 AP style, Free Response Question. The Free Response Question is like a short answer question but it contains multiple parts. The exam will focus on the creation of the Constitution and the founding principles. The class notes have been made available to the students to help them study along with a vocabulary list and some learning objectives. A review sheet has been made to help guide the students with their studying and is posted on the Student Drive.


Although we will do some review in class together, I have encouraged the students to also review outside of class by answering the learning objectives and defining the vocabulary terms. Creating a Quizlet is a helpful way to study for many students since once they make the flashcards they are then able to take practice quizzes and play games to challenge themselves.


I will be here everyday before and after school next week for additional help. In addition, I will be dedicating my Homework Hour after school on Thursday to a study session for my AP students if they would like one.


If there is anything further I can do to help your student please let me know.

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend!
