Advanced Research & Writing: The Advanced Research and Writing (ARW) course was created to help students develop their research, writing, and communication skills. This course is designed to help students learn skills that you will need for success in all academic disciplines. Over the course of the year, students will investigate topics both individually and within collaborative groups. This knowledge will help prepare students to progress in both the IB Diploma Programme and/or AP Coursework.
American History 2:The American History II Course will guide students from the end of the Reconstruction era to present times. It will guide students from the late nineteenth century time period through the early 21st century. Students will examine the political, economic, social and cultural development of the United States. The essential standards of American History Course II will trace the change in the ethnic composition of American society; the movement toward equal rights for racial minorities and women; and the role of the United States as a major world power. An emphasis is placed on the expanding role of the federal government and federal courts as well as the continuing tension between the individual and the state. The desired outcome of this course is for students to develop an understanding of the cause-and-effect relationship between past and present events, recognize patterns of interactions, and understand the impact of events on in the United States in an interconnected world.
AP United States History: 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 skills 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; and culture and society) that students explore throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places.
