Mrs. Riney's Website

Welcome to AP US History, and Government.  This is my 16th year of teaching at Montgomery High School. I attended Calvin College in Grand Rapids, MI and graduated from Sam Houston State with a degree in Political Science. 

 

I have lived in Montgomery for 30 years.  I have been married to my husband, Casey, for 30 years, and we have three children, each of whom attended Montgomery schools from Kindergarten through graduation.  My oldest daughter graduated from MHS in 2010 and graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in May, 2014.  She is now married, and she and her husband, Zeric, are Captains in the US Army and are currently stationed at Ft. Hood in Killeen, TX.  My son graduated from MHS in 2013, and he is working for a local oilfield service company.  My youngest graduated in 2017 and is now a junior at Texas A & M University.

 

AP US History is designed to give high school students the opportunity to experience US History at the college level.  When you enrolled in this course, you accepted a challenge and an opportunity.  I am excited to begin this historical adventure with you.   

Students in this class will take both the AP exam and the STAAR/EOC in the spring of 2020.

Government is a one semester class designed as an introduction and overview to politics and processes within the United States government.

He is using AP World examples, and he's suggesting that you write out notes by theme.  You don't have to do this.  I gave you the key concept outlines and asked you to list proper noun (if possible) examples under each.  That is basically what Heimler recommends here. But Heimler does a good job of explaining why this is important!  Your completed key concept outline is something you should have out and available during the exam. Remember, you won't have enough time to study your notes and write an essay on exam day
