Hello Scholars! My name is Ms. Fuemmeler and this is my third year at Moberly High School. I studied History and Political Science at the University of Notre Dame, and love learning more about our country's history and government. In addition to teaching, I'm also the head coach of the Lady Spartan Softball Team, and an assistant Track coach. Each week I will post our upcoming assignments and lesson plan on ClassJump. You will be able to find worksheets, homework, review guides, and other important information. This is the best place to discover what's happening in Room 503! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
A.P. U.S. History
The AP U.S. History (APUSH) course is a 2-semester preparation for students to take the annual College Board AP exam. This course will prepare you for an entry or intermediate level college course in American History, thus it requires higher level thinking skills. During the course you will learn to assess historical materials both in their relevance, their reliability, and their importance. You will weigh evidence and interpretations in historical scholarship. You will use primary sources and scholarly materials on a regular basis. By the end of the year you will possess the skills necessary to arrive at conclusions on the basis of an informed judgment and present reasons and evidence clearly and persuasively in an essay.
In addition to all of these skills you will travel with your classmates through exploration in the New World to the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Not only will you study the simple facts, dates, places, and people of history you will focus on themes throughout history to draw conclusions from each era. Be prepared for a journey of high expectations, hard work, and reward.
