Legacy Wall: AP Midterm Review by Period

APUSH | Legacy Wall | Key Concepts Review | Periods 1-5
What is a legacy wall? A wall (or walkway) built using bricks. The bricks are replaced or given a face plate that includes
information as a means to commemorate an individual, a group, or specific events.
What is an informational text? For the purposes of this project “informational text” will refer to a photo, graph, chart, quote,
excerpt, or other primary source relevant to the topic examined. Consider this the visual aid 
Objective 1: Content
To review all of the historical themes: National Identity (NAT); Work, Exchange, & Technology (WXT); Migration/Movements
of People (MIG); Politics & Power (POL); America in the World (WOR); Geography & Environment (ENV); Belief Systems, Ideas
& Culture (CUL)
Objective 2: Skills
To focus on purposeful reading, interpretation and application of historical information in context of the key concepts in
order to produce a final product that includes thoughtful, well-written, evidence-rich gist statements and meaningful visuals
to support the response.
This project is an individual project although students may collaborate in the development of gist statements.
The final product presentation may vary in order to provide an opportunity for individual creativity; however, the final
product needs to be in hard copy format (this time).
The final product must include the following requirements:
This project requires a hard copy format [future project will allow for technology-based project]
All text must be clearly written or typed
Color to enhance and showcase… not a distraction.

1 informational text per brick: pictures, symbols, graphic logos, etc
Each brick must have a title AND a gist statement—description/summarizing statement/meaningful quote (use
whichever format is best for that tile and topic) to provide contextual understanding of the topic.
Each brick will identify who “donated” the tile and the key concept reference. The person or group donating the
tile will be connected to the key event. For example, President James Monroe KC4.3.1 purchases the brick on the
Monroe Doctrine
Final product must include a Credits page [reference bibliography for all information gathered]. This page will also
provide a listing of peer collaborators [gist statements]
Final product should meet professional standards—quality, neat, correct spelling, grammar, all items strongly
secured if appropriate…
