APUSH Review Project


In preparation for the AP Exam, you and your group will be working collaboratively together on an APUSH Review Project. You will be responsible for both individual and group contributions, covering all nine Key Periods. You will display your creations on a class Padlet board. These boards will be linked to our class website to be used as a crowd-sourced concept review.

Project Submissions

  • You will be working in a group of 3-4 students. You will work with this group for the remainder of the school year.
  • Each member is responsible for 1 individual submission, and 1 group submission. All Key Periods must be covered by either an individual or group project.
  • Group submissions must visibly include the work of all group members.
  • Everything must be school appropriate. If you have to ask me if it’s appropriate, it’s probably not. Inappropriate material will result in a zero for that submission.
  • All videos must be uploaded to YouTube.
  • All work will be uploaded onto the corresponding Key Period column of the class Padlet. Each submission must have the student's name clearly posted in the title of the submission.
  • Due dates will be posted on the class website.
