My APUSH Jedi Knights, as I call them since I am a proud Star Wars Nerd,  have a procession to our multipurpose room to take the test, with music playing from the school band, horns, flags, lightsabers you name it. Over the last 6 years I have had an average of 110 students take the test.  Every year my brother designs Star Wars & US History themed t-shirts which are pictured on the right.  I want my students to walk into the test with confidence and swagger, and they always do.  After the test is over, everyone meets back in my classroom for lunch and they are always excited about how they performed...well most of them :)  Every year I have done this, my students always have said that this is their favorite day.  Mine too :)
