Knowing more than the facts is essential for success on the AP Test. This exercise will help you create thematic associations within decades.
*Place the correct decade or group of years beside each group of specific factual information.
Remember some items can fit into more than one decade so be sure to read through and consider the entire group. **On the chart for each Decade, write a definition or description of what each item is, how it relates to that particular decade, and what other terms could be associated with that decade. Use the following groups of years in place of decades for the Colonial period: 1600-1650, 1650-1700, and 1700-1750s
After the 1750s, use normal decades 1760s, 1770s, 1780s, etc.
