While my 4th and 5th period people know this already, I wanted to be sure everyone, including parents, know of a fantastic opportunity we have to boost our performance on the AP World History exam.
With the exam only 38 days away, we have added a highly effective tool to our preparation efforts: through a special arrangement with the publisher, all students enrolled in WHAP at HSPVA may set up an account with GetAFive.com at no charge! (Normally, the fee is $50.)
What’s that? It’s an online resource that allows students to take a diagnostic exam and then get a customized study plan that includes very targeted, easy to understand videos (70 of them) on World History topics, quizzes (255 AP style questions) and an online practice exam. This should be a huge relief for those students who are let’s say, “challenged” when it comes to reading motivation!
Simply go to the “Exam Review” page of BinghamsPlace.com and enter the password, “effort” (w/o the quotes). There you will find the link and the promo code that allows you to sign up for free. I’m so excited about this opportunity, I’ll even make enrolling and taking the diagnostic a 100 for a reading check grade!
I am convinced that students who use this tool to supplement the work we are doing in class will substantially improve their chances of earning the HSPVA goal of a FIVE on the AP World History exam this year. Do it now!
