History and Government

 AP US Government (Grade 12) is the traditional Advanced Placement course for high school seniors.  Prior completion of US History is strongly recommended.  This course takes the basics learned in AP US history and focuses on government institutions in the shaping of history.  Special emphasis is made on Supreme Court Cases as it affects our nation’s laws and history as well as the evolution of our government institutions.  The course requires strong analytical and writing skills.

 

AP World History is an incisive study of the cultural, intellectual, social, political and economic developments of world civilizations from pre-history to the twenty-first century.  To this end, student analyses will emphasize societal inter-relationships, forms of governance, gender roles and commercial dynamism, all with a special accent on the impact of geography in nurturing the progress of the human community.  Interpretation of historical primary sources is an essential task for this course.

 

AP United States History is a critical study of the intellectual, social, political, economic and constitutional development of the United States of America.  In this vein, student analyses pursue “threads of continuity” that run through the history of the United States and which lend so much meaning to a thoughtful examination of that history and to incisive correlation of significant persons, events and documents.  Most important, students will be encouraged to reflect and write about salient issues derived from serious consideration of those relationships.  Interpretation of historical primary sources is an essential task for this course.

 

AP European History is a critical examination of European society from the thirteenth to the twenty-first century.  Students, by their analyses, will identify themes that pervade the character and the history of the development of the European community.  They, too, will be expected to identify and explain salient political, economic, philosophical, and artistic examples that underwrite those themes.  Interpretation of historical primary sources is an essential task for this course.
