Description

AP U.S. History is designed to be the equivalent of a two-semester introductory college U.S. history course. In AP U.S. History, students investigate significant events, individuals, developments, and processes in nine historical periods from approximately 1491 to the present. Students develop and use the same skills, practices, and methods employed by historians: analyzing primary and secondary sources; developing historical arguments; making historical comparisons; and utilizing reasoning about contextualization, causation, and continuity and change over time. The course also provides eight themes that students explore throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places: American and national identity; migration and settlement; politics and power; work, exchange, and technology; America in the world; geography and the environment; American and regional culture; and social structures. All students enrolled in the course are required to take the AP U.S. History Examination on May 8th, 2020, for which there is a fee. Those students who achieve a score of 5, 4, or 3 on the examination are eligible for college credit.
