Extra Credit Enrichment

Page history last edited by Cher McDonald 1 year, 10 months ago

AP US History requires enrichment to be completed for the third trimester BEFORE you can complete any extra credit enrichment.


The books available for extra credit enrichment are considered alternate histories.  They present a what-if scenario at a critical time in America History. The stories can include an sci-fi element, or change one pivotal event.

  • To receive credit for enrichment, turn in a written (typed, double-spaced, 12 point type, no odd fonts) review of the book before the last week of the Trimester. Most of your review MUST examine how the book measures up to what we have learned in class, why that moment in history was chosen, and your analysis of whether this situation could really happen.

    • Author, Title, Year

    • Number of Pages in the book

    • 1) What is the basic plot line? (very brief)

    • 2) Are there historical figures represented? Who? How does their portrayal compare to what you know really happened?

    • 3) Why was that moment in history was chosen? How does it impact the history of the United States in the book? Could it really have happened?

    • 4) What is your personal review of the book. (very brief)
