Ms. Erin Tenczar

Congratulations, you have taken the first step to accept the challenge of Advanced Placement United States History! APUSH is taught at the college level, and it is more rigorous and demanding than most American history courses offered in college.

The central focus of our time together will be preparing you to pass the national College Board APUSH exam, taken in May of 2022. If you pass the exam, you may be able to receive college credit for this class without the college price tag! The APUSH curriculum is a comprehensive examination of our nation’s history, spanning the Age of Discovery in the late 15th century to the present. Not only are you responsible for examining over four hundred years worth of material, but you will also master the skills that are at the heart of APUSH. That means practicing your skills through lots of writing assignments. You can expect the pace of APUSH to be uncomfortably fast and at the same time, you will be required to meet all standards.
