AP US History

This is a college-level United States history course that, among other goals, is designed to prepare students to pass the College Board’s AP U.S. history exam. Other desired outcomes include that students develop relevant and enduring understandings of current world issues and relate them to their historical, political, economic, geographical, and cultural contexts. Students taking this course will broaden their historical perspectives as they explore ways societies have dealt with continuity and change. They will also develop analytical and reasoning skills that are transferable across disciplines and will prove beneficial in future endeavors from college classrooms to organizational board rooms.
