Hello AP U.S. History Students!

This course is designed to provide you with an in depth study of American History and to successfully prepare you for the AP U.S. history exam. Emphasis is on the broad narrative of American history from 1491 to present. Areas of concentration include historical, political, and economic coupled with the study of cultural and social institutions in particular.

This course is taught at the college level. The major difference between a college and high school level class is the amount of reading, writing and depth of discussion. You will be required frequently to analyze, synthesize, and evaluate primary and secondary historical sources in addition to explaining the causes and effects of major events in U. S. history.

Students who successfully meet the objectives of this course can receive college credit for their work as well as advanced placement in college history. To measure that success the College Board (the same people who bring you the ACT/SAT) will administer an advanced placement examination in American history on May 15, 2014.

Please get registered on this site. Many documents will be downloaded to Classjump throughout the year and it will be your responsibility to print them off and have those assignment ready when due for class. Here are some sites you can browse if you have time: American Pageant and AP Central. The American Pageant site has a wealth of resources--from powerpoint lectures to mp3 downloads.

I look forward to a rewarding, fun and memorable year together!

Welcome to World...History

In this course you'll be given an opportunity to develop knowledge of and an appreciation for the contributions of many cultures to the history of the world. An emphasis will be placed upon the ideas and events of both Western and non-Western civilizations as they have come to shape our present world.

Please get registered on this site. Many documents will be downloaded to Classjump throughout the year and it will be your responsibility to print them off and have those assignments ready when due for class. A reading calendar has been posted this site. Cornell notes (or SQ3R notes) are a required part of this class. This is a skill-based strategy that will be great preparation for those of you planning on going on to college after high school. Cornell notes (or SQ3R notes) also improve reading comprehension and reading speed.

I look forward to a great year together! Don't hesitate to come in and talk with me if you have any questions or concerns.
