Course Description

In this course, students engage in an in-depth examination of America’s history from the Reconstruction era to the modern day. Students will gain a sophisticated understanding of America’s history through detailed, informative video lectures that tie the historical content to larger concepts and themes. Students will also deepen their understanding of U.S. History through analyzing historical sources, developing historical arguments, and identifying patterns of continuity and change.

While this is an introductory, college-level course, students will be scaffolded with several organizational aids. This course has been recently updated to align with significant changes in the College Board’s AP U.S. History curriculum and exam format.This is part two of a two-part course. Together, these courses prepare students to take the AP U.S. History exam if they so choose.

Course Goals

By taking this course, students will have a deeper understanding of America's history and its relationship to the modern-day.

Upon completion of both Parts 1 and 2 of this course, students will be prepared to take the AP U.S History Exam in May.
