The AP student’s primary responsibility is to read each assigned section of the textbook and add notes from the reading to the course notes. To better understand the reading, students should focus on the “terms to identify” and “concepts to grasp” and be prepared for a quiz on any of these items. The teacher’s role is to clarify the significance of the readings, terms, and learning targets, and to show the student how they fit into the “big picture” of American history. If the student does not fully understand a term or concept, he/she must ask in class.
