AP US History

Description:

Welcome to the Advanced Placement (AP) U.S. History course. This History curriculum covers all the material outlined by the College Board as necessary to prepare you to pass the AP U.S. History exam.

Our text is The American Pageant, which is the most frequently used text in APUSH classes across the country. While the nationwide passing rate on the AP exam (3 or above) is just slightly over 50%, the passing rate for eAchieve APUSH students exceeds 80%, so eAchieve students do extraordinarily well.

Through this course students will be expected to:

  • Demonstrate comprehension of a broad body of historical knowledge
  • Express ideas clearly in writing
  • Work with classmates to research an historical issue
  • Interpret and apply data from original documents
  • Identify underrepresented historical viewpoints
  • Write to persuade with evidence
  • Compare and contrast alternate interpretations of an historical figure, event, or trend
  • Explain how an historical event connects to or causes a larger trend or theme
  • Develop essay responses that include a clear, defensible thesis statement and supporting evidence
  • Effectively argue a position on an historical issue
  • Critique and respond to arguments made by others
  • Raise and explore questions about policies, institutions, beliefs, and actions in an historical context
  • Evaluate primary materials, such as historical documents, political cartoons, and first-person narratives
  • Evaluate secondary materials, such as scholarly works or statistical analyses
  • Assess the historical significance and cultural impact of key literary works (e.g. Common Sense, Uncle Tom's Cabin)

Learning Targets:

  1. Target 1 (Writing): Develop a thesis, support with multiple forms of evidence, and provide analysis with an explanation in written form.
  2. Target 2 (Reading): Identify main ideas, analyze supporting details, and evaluate inferences within discipline-specific readings.
  3. Target 3 (Content): Apply content in order to evaluate relationships and draw conclusions.
  4. Target 4 (Communication): Produce clear and coherent communication in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and audience.
