AP U.S. History

This course is a general survey of United States History. According to the College Board: The Advanced Placement Program in United States History is designed to provide students with the analytical skills and factual knowledge necessary to deal critically with the problems and materials in United States History. The program prepares students for intermediate and advanced college courses by making demands upon them equivalent to those made by full-year introductory college courses. The materials, the pace of the course, and the teaching methodologies are designed to resemble as closely as possible a freshman history course offered at the college level. Students and parents should be aware of the additional workload that accompanies this class. Students are expected to take the Advanced Placement examination.

Note: summer reading requirement for this course will be announced in the spring via the Carondelet/De La Salle website.
