Project Description

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.
