Welcome to AP US II
    Read like a historian  
     Get ready for a busy and exciting year!  Our curriculum challenges you to think like a historian.  This class is not so much about memorizing historical detail, but being able to use the details to understand the deeper meanings and patterns in history.  The course involves constant class participation, lots of writing, and consistent reading! 
    Over the summer:  Follow all instructions under Summer Reading Assignment including formatting guidelines.  Be prepared for a quiz on the summer reading. 
    •  large ring binder
    •  looseleaf paper
    •  printer paper 
    •  colored pencils 
    •  AP Review Book (Kaplan is a good choice)
    This is a discussion based class. Be prepared to participate during each session! See
