AP US History
Our summer intro US History course prepares students not only for the various elements of the subject matter tested in the AP exam, but also develops in them the fundamental analytical and articulatory skills valued by schools, universities, and employers the world over. Participants will learn how to locate and evaluate sources; embed various sources, including visual ones, within their own writing; develop historical hypotheses, and substantiate them through use of specific evidence. All of these skills are essential to success in both their high school class and eventually the AP exam itself. They will also focus on improving their essay writing skills through frequent assignments and in-class seminar-style discussion. Students can expect to receive 2-3 hours of homework per day.
“It was very intensive and I was able to cram in a lot of key information the night before the exam. The class was very active and student focused, so it made me think for myself instead of the tutor lecturing to me.“
“I took the APUSH class because I took the AP World class last year and felt that the class helped me. This class helped me summarize each chapter in preparation for the chapter quizzes.”
