About this course:

This 45-hour-equivalent online course includes intensive sessions for teachers who are designing an AP® United States History (AP® USH) course for their high school or planning to take over an existing program. Administrators and AP® coordinators should find this course useful, as it explains the design, benefits, and challenges of an AP® U.S.History high school course. Topics include a history of The College Board's AP® program, timing and scheduling decisions that must be made when offering the course, and establishing an AP® USH classroom experience that maximizes teaching and learning. The AP® USH exam (offered each May) is explained, and tips for teaching and testing AP®-quality multiple-choice questions, free-response essays, and the document-based question are provided. Participants conclude by creating their own syllabus for a two-semester-long AP® USH course. Tips on textbook selection, source books, audiovisuals, and web-based learning opportunities are given. This course is particularly useful for the new AP® teacher who may have students who historically have been underrepresented in AP® programs. Materials published by The College Board are the basis for course readings. Hands-on assignments should prove useful and practical for teachers who are setting up an AP® USH course.
