Description

This is a full year of a traditional APUSH (Advanced Placement United States History) level course covered in about 3 months’ time, and is designed to help prepare learners for higher-level courses, or act as a college prep course for the APUSH exam.

Meets for one hour per meeting, twice per week, for 13 weeks. 

I have prepared Powerpoint Slideshow presentations I’ll screenshare, to introduce information for each of the nine units we will study. Learners are also provided with a “survival guide” that can be used with the quiz-taking portion at the end of each unit. Quizzes and the review are all open-notes. They’re set up to be taken on Google forms, and I will grade then submit final scores into the classroom. Learners and I will read all slides aloud in a round robin fashion. We will discuss key points as we go along. Each class is one hour long, a total of 26 hours in class.

The AP U.S. History Exam measures students’ knowledge of U.S. history and their ability to think historically. Questions are based on key and supporting concepts, course themes, and the disciplinary practices and reasoning skills outlined in the course and exam description.

While this is considered an AP level course due to the speed, critical thinking required, and how thorough it is, this course is suitable for learners who don’t want or need AP courses. However, this course is designed to cover much of the information necessary to pass the exam.
