AP US HISTORY SUMMER ASSIGNMENT 2015-2016
Why a summer assignment?
Over the course of a year we have to study from the formation of the North American
Continent all the way through current times. The summer assignment serves to give you an
idea of the level of work, which will be expected throughout the course of the year, as well
as allows for us to explore more material in class. Although these chapters will be briefly
reviewed, we will begin our study of American history with the Revolutionary War.
WARNING: This is a very comprehensive assignment and will most likely take you a
total of over 20 hours over the summer to complete. Do not put this off until a week
before school starts. You have 85 days of summer, which translates to roughly 3
pages of reading a day. Late assignments will not be accepted.
