Build a Reference Binder


To compile a reference tool for building skills or learning content that students can use independently to continue learning beyond in-class instruction.


Students with reference tools will lean upon their own knowledge to help them build the skills and content they need to succeed on the AP Exam.

Action Steps

  • Provide a binder and/or digital artifact collection tool.
  • Model for students how to collect reference documents, including building a table of contents for samples, notes for later reference, and page numbers for simplified navigation.
  • Make use of the binder as a tool for students to prepare for assessments or future assignments (so students know they can rely on it for support).
  • Consider keeping a similar system to model for students or for record keeping purposes.
