Course Overview
Advanced Placement United States history is designed
to prepare students for intermediate and advanced college courses. The goal is to provide students with the analytical skills and factual knowledge necessary to deal critically with the situations and conflicts in American history. Students will learn to assess historical materials, weigh evidence and interpret events within a historical context. Emphasis will be placed on the students' ability to evaluate the relevance, reliability and importance of historical materials in order to arrive at an informed judgment and be able to present that judgment clearly and persuasively in an essay format.

Course Expectations
Students are expected to self-engage in a rigorous preparation regimen which includes the absorption of text and supplemental materials, as would be expected in a college course. In addition, students are expected to come to class each day prepared and ready to be an active participant in that day's lesson.
