American Government Students! What are Optional Projects on the Course Schedule?

AP World History Students!


All AP World History students will be using Shmoop as a resource and study aid throughout the semester. Students have the opportunity to earn Shmoints (Shmoop points) in Shmoop. Shmoints can be exchanged for extra credit points added to tests and assignments. 75 Shmoints=5 extra credit points. You will be in control of where you would like these Shmoop points added!

Follow the directions below to register for a Shmoop account. Once you register, you will be receiving an email from me via GAVS Google email. The email will provide you with instructions on joining our AP World History Shmoop classroom.

Once you join our AP Shmoop classroom, you can begin earning Shmoints towards extra credit points in class!
