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 Friday, May 8, 2015.

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.

I was a Political Science and English major in college with aspirations of law school one day. That was long ago. It was always my desire to teach Political Science when I first started teaching and this year is the first chance I’ve had since starting in the this district, well, before you were born.   Clearly it is going to be hard not being influenced by this political moment in time as we explore the Pol Sci curriculum. My hope is to discuss (in a civil nature) the critical issues facing the county in this election year. At the same time, I hope you all will enjoy learning about American government, the political process, with a glance a political theory and constitutional law. And all of this in 60 days! You do need this class to graduate so give it your best shot and you should succeed at that. Look forward to getting to know you!
