    I. ASSIGNMENT ONE: (ONLY for students currently taking AP World History:)
    By August 1: complete online course: US History I.
    Rationale: Students no longer study American History in middle school. Students who take AP World during their sophomore year will not have studied American history since fifth grade; thus they lack the knowledge base needed for success in a college-level United States History course. Now that our AP courses have been shortened, there is not enough time during the school year
    2) Go to catch students upturnitin.com and create an account if necessary by clicking on basic knowledge of early U.S. History. Consequently, all AP World students who wish to take APUSH next year will be expected to complete an online course in US History I, in order to gather basic factual knowledge of this time period.
    ALL STUDENTS MUST COMPLETE ASSIGNMENTS TWO THROUGH FIVE:
    Please note that all TYPED assignments that are due
    “create account” on August seventeenth must be dropped off at Beverly High School, in the upper right.
