AP United States History
"We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience." — George Washington
AP United States History (APush) fulfills one of the history requirements for the state of Georgia. APush also gives students a foundation for taking the APush exam in the Spring. It is NOT necessary for students to take the APush exam unless they choose to.
Our area of focus will be from the early 1400s, beginning with Native American tribes and explorers to the present day. We will focus primarily upon studying the formation of the United States, its leaders, politics, thought, music, art, industry and people of this great country. Class time will be comprised of lectures, group discussions, and presentations. APush students will be required to know all the states and capitals in the USA, complete a collegiate book review and complete a project in the springtime. Class time will also cover preparing students for the APush exam and how to write for the SAQ, LEQ and DBQ.
Tuition: Sept-May $85/mo
Fees: One time $30.00 fee for photo copying primary/secondary/test sources for students to be used through the year. Please note that this fee does not cover the APush spring exam. That will be the responsibility of each student should they decide to take the APush exam.
Textbook: More than likely The American Nation. Information will be sent regarding text when students sign up for class.
