Honors Course Descriptions
 
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.
 
Honors United States History:The Honors American History II Courses will guide students from the end of the Reconstruction era to present times. The course is challenging and requires students to take greater responsibility for their learning by participating in problem-seeking and problem-solving, scholarly and creative processes, critical analysis and application, reflective thinking, and the expression and defense of ideas generated through the study of the content. Honors American History II follows the same course of study as the corresponding standard American History II course; however, the material is taught with greater complexity, novelty, acceleration, and reflects a differentiated curriculum. Honors American History II is distinguished by a difference in the quality of the work expected, not merely an increase in quantity.
 
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.
