We’ve got a new blog in the family! http://modernamericabhs.wordpress.com is the blog for the senior elective Modern America. It is open to students to post their reactions, thoughts, and extra materials as they go through the course exploring the popular culture of America from the 60’s through now. Feel free to let them know what you think by sharing your memories, commentary, and favorites from the past!
It is that time of year when students are required to turn in their textbooks to their teachers, so drag it out from under the bed, pull it from the trunk of the car where it was useful as weight for traction in the winter, or un-prop your doors and bring it to your history teacher.
In order for students to receive their final exam, they must return the book that they were assigned at the beginning of the course to the teacher. In the event that the book has gone missing, students are expected to provide a check or cash to cover the replacement cost of the text. For both the US I and II books (The Americans) and for the WH II book (World History: Patterns of Interaction) the replacement cost is $65. Checks should be made out to Burlington High School.
To help with the book identification, pictures of each textbook for the core courses are below.
Each year the AP World History students enter into a competition known only as May Madness, where they do a blind draw to become different leaders from World History and battle their way to become the greatest leader of all time. Don’t see your favorite here this year? Check back next year!
The brackets will be posted here and updated, and if you want to play the bracket to see how much you think you know about different leaders, you can play Round One by clicking the links for each period. As they get winnowed down, check back for updated brackets! Let the Madness begin!
