AP World History: Modern Mon@8:00 AM EST

$1,197

with SocSci Instructor (M.A. or PhD)

Calendar Aug 22, 2022 at 8 am, runs for 30 weeks

The purpose of the AP World History course is to develop greater understanding of the evolution of global processes and contacts, in interaction with different types of human societies. This understanding is advanced through a combination of selective factual knowledge and appropriate analytical skills. The course highlights the nature of changes in international frameworks and their causes and consequences, as well as comparisons among major societies. The course emphasizes relevant factual knowledge deployed in conjunction with leading interpretive issues and types of historical evidence. The course builds on an understanding of cultural, institutional, and technological precedents that, along with geography, set the human stage. Periodization, explicitly discussed, forms an organizing principle for dealing with change and continuity throughout the course. Specific themes provide further organization to the course, along with the consistent attention to contacts among societies that form the core of world history as a field of study. College world history courses vary considerably in the approach used, the chronological framework chosen, the content covered, the themes selected, and the analytical skills emphasized. The material that follows describes the choices the AP World History Development Committee has made to create the course and exam. These choices themselves are compatible with a variety of college-level curricular approaches. All AP courses are College Board audited (approved) and count from 6-12 hours college credit.

AP US History Mon@9:30 AM EST

$1,197
Calendar Aug 22, 2022 at 9:30 am, runs for 30 weeks

The AP program in United States History is designed to provide students with the analytical skills and enduring understandings 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. Students should learn to assess historical materials—their relevance to a given interpretive problem, their reliability, and their importance—and to weigh the evidence and interpretations presented in historical scholarship. An AP United States History course should thus develop the skills necessary to arrive at conclusions on the basis of an informed judgment and to present reasons and evidence clearly and persuasively in an essay format. All AP courses are College Board audited (approved) and count from 6-12 hours college credit.

AP United States Government and Politics introduces students to key political ideas, institutions, policies, interactions, roles, and behaviors that characterize the political culture of the United States.

All AP courses are College Board audited (approved) and count from 6-12 hours college credit.

AP European History Tue@12:30 PM EST

$1,197

with SocSci Instructor (M.A. or PhD)

Calendar Aug 23, 2022 at 12:30 pm, runs for 30 weeks

The study of European history since 1450 introduces students to cultural, economic, political, and social developments that played a fundamental role in shaping the world in which they live. Without this knowledge, we would lack the context for understanding the development of contemporary institutions, the role of continuity and change in present-day society and politics, and the evolution of current forms of artistic expression and intellectual discourse. In addition to providing a basic narrative of events and movements, the goals of the AP program in European History are to develop (a) an understanding of some of the principal themes in modern European History, (b) an ability to analyze historical evidence and historical interpretation, and (c) an ability to express historical understanding in writing. All AP courses are College Board audited (approved) and count from 6-12 hours college credit.
