About This Course...
From the College Board...
The 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 should 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. An AP U.S. History course should thus 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 esssay format.
 
 
 
 
 
Projects...
 
Throughout the year, you will be assigned independent research projects. Please be sure to put forth extra effort on these assignments!

If art is to nourish the roots of our culture, society must set the artist free to follow his vision wherever it takes him.
