Course Description
Welcome to Advanced Placement United States History and Government.†This course has been designed according to College Board specifications in order to help you develop the factual and analytical knowledge necessary to understand and interpret United States history.†It will emphasize the skills required in college-level history courses, including the ability to read and analyze primary and secondary documents, to interpret charts, graphs and maps, to read and write effectively, to solve historical problems, and to think critically.†It will also encourage you to think like a historian rather than a mere receptacle of facts.†Last but certainly not least, this course is designed to prepare you with the knowledge and skills needed to succeed on the Advanced Placement Examination in United States History, which all students enrolled in this class are required to take when it is administered by the College Board in May.
Overview:†AP United States History is taught chronologically, from the discovery of America to the present.†The course consists of six major units.†The first three units will be completed during the fall semester and the last three during the spring.†Time spent in class will utilize a wide variety of techniques, ranging from class discussions and lectures to debates, group activities, role plays and simulations designed to encourage students to bring history to life and to solve historical problems and controversies.†After the AP exam in May, we will have a unit on current public policy issues as well as time to prepare for the New York State Regents Examination administered in June.
Texts:†The main textbook for this course is†The Enduring Vision, by Boyer et al. †In addition to this basic text, all students will be assigned copies of two additional historical resources, including Howard ZinnísA Peopleís History of the United States, which provides a social perspective of the nationís past, and a review book by the Amsco publishing company specifically designed to prepare students for the AP exam.††
