This honors level History class prepares students for the AP exam.
This course develops critical thinking skills by encouraging multiple views as students realize that there are often multiple accounts of a single historical event that may not be entirely consistent. Electronic discussion groups encourage collaboration, and a variety of practice activities are provided, from multiple choice actions to advanced interactions.
Units include: The Historical Process; Early America; Revolutionary America; Era of Transformation; The Civil War; Reconstruction; Populism and Progressivism; the emergence of the U.S. as a world power; The Great Depression and the New Deal; World War II; Cold War; Women’s Liberation Movement; Conservatism; Post-Cold War Era; and contemporary themes.
Students receive simulated AP tests to prepare them to succeed in the May AP exam.
