This is a college level presentation of United States history and culture. It prepares students for college level work through lectures, original source readings, research papers, critical analysis of texts, student led discussion of original source materials, debates, various student presentations, and focused research projects demanding evaluation and synthesis. Students will be prepared to take the Advanced Placement College Board examination, from which they may earn college credit for the course. The U.S. and Illinois Constitution tests are given in the first quarter. Successful completion of both is required to pass the course. Students will be assigned one book to read and will be tested on it as school starts. Students will be required to take the AP Exam in the spring.
