A.P. U.S. History
Reading assignments followed by a multiple choice quiz will occur each week. Each unit will incorporate group and/or individual analysis of historical source material as well as interpretive work by authors. Students will be required to participate in class discussions and in group round table discussions centered on historiography. Particular emphasis will be placed on differences in interpretations of history and historical events from one generation to the next and how these different evaluations have made an impact on how historians interpret our modern world and societies. Use of the Document Based Question Essay will be employed as a tool to achieve this end. Students will also be required to regularly write FRQs in class and for take home assignments.
