Description:"This course is the first half of a two-course sequence designed to prepare students for the College Board Advanced Placement® United States History Examination. Lessons contain discussion of textbook readings, analysis of primary and secondary sources, research activities, chart and map exercises, objective self-check tests and interpretive essays. There are also five unit reviews that help students master College Board’s thematic learning objectives, as well as consider historic periodization and interpret primary and secondary sources. Graded projects require students to defend interpretations in historic essays and trace the development of historic themes over time. AP© U.S. History 1 explores the social, political and economic development of the United States from the Colonial Era until 1877. It covers pre-Columbian America, European colonization, the American Revolution, the formation of the American political system, agricultural and industrial trends, westward expansion, social conditions and the mounting differences between North and South. The course discusses the Civil War and concludes with a survey of the Reconstruction process through which the southern states were readmitted to the Union. This course has been authorized by College Board. While AP© U.S. History 1 will help prepare students for the College Board Examination, this examination is NOT required for completion of the course. Purchase of the printed course content is recommended for study beyond course completion. Internet access is highly recommended for AP© U.S. History 1."
