AP US History  

View Events/Assignments for 

The AP U.S. History course focuses on developing students’ understanding of American history from approximately 1491 to the present. The course has students investigate the content of U.S. history for significant events, individuals, developments, and processes in nine historical periods, and develop and use the same thinking skill and methods (analyzing primary and secondary sources, making historical comparisons, chronological reasoning, and argumentation) employed by historians when they study the past. The course also provides seven themes:

  • American and national identity
  • Migration and settlement
  • Politics and power
  • Work, exchange, and technology
  • America in the world
  • Geography and the environment
  • Culture and society

Students explore these throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places.
