U.S. History (AP® Courses Offered)

U S HistoryThis elective was created for students who want to dig deeper into U.S. history and find more than dates and facts, but understand the relationship between the people, events, and movements that shaped the United States from 1492 into the modern era. Emphasis on the broad themes of war and treaties, territorial expansion, immigration, slavery, civil rights, labor history, and constitutional controversies support critical thinking skills and encourage discussion throughout this self-directed course. The course units include text-based content, on and off-computer exercises, special projects, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's learners and help teachers to evaluate progress and mastery of the materials. U.S. History (for use with AP* courses) enriches the educational experience for Christian school students and sparks a passion for learning. An additional textbook is required.
