A key to success is to do the American Pageant (thirteenth edition) readings the weekend before the unit. Reading prior to the week's activities will help the student understand class activities, and prepare for the unit exams, DBQ’s and the new additions the “Long Essay” and “short answers”. There is an exam at the end of each unit. Most units will take two weeks, but some weeks may be extended due to holidays or teacher training in-services.

Sticking to the schedule below should enable students to plan and budget their time. The study guide questions, found on teacher website, should guide readings while the terms that coincide with each unit should be completed as the class moves from unit to unit. Students will be tested on key terms for each unit. Chapter outlines, additional essay questions, primary sources and scholarly writings will be assigned on a unit to unit basis. Study guide questions and key terms will be collected on designated days within each unit.
