The first unit of AP United States History focuses on the exploration of North America and the founding of a new nation on that continent. With the great variety of topics, themes, events, and issues explored throughout the semester, it is very beneficial to start off the school year with a strong foundation of information. With that said, there will be some videos viewed, readings completed and questions answered prior to the beginning of our class, so that we can get right to the material after our introductions on the first day. All paperwork is due no later than our third class together during the first week. Failure to complete the readings/questions will result in communication with parents and the counseling center.
