AP U.S. History class is a Junior/Senior level class taught in an A/B Day format all year long. Students are required to complete summer work for the first day of class, no exceptions. An extensive amount of reading and writing will be assigned for each class, and graded at a college-level. Students will be responsible for not only reading the textbook in its entirety, but a variety of other primary and secondary sources as well that will help create a full picture of American History. All students enrolled in this course are required to take the AP Exam.
AP Central’s Description: This AP U.S. History course is designed to provide students with the analytic skills and factual knowledge necessary to deal critically with the problems and materials in U.S. history. The program prepares students for intermediate and advanced college courses by making demands upon them equivalent to those made by full-year introductory college courses. Students will learn to assess historical materials—their relevance to a given interpretive problem, reliability, and importance—and to weigh the evidence and interpretations presented in historical scholarship. This course will develop the skills necessary to arrive at conclusions on the basis of an informed judgment and to present reasons and evidence clearly and persuasively in essay format.
