Advanced U.S. History

by George Burson

AP® Curriculum Aligned*

This course is specifically intended for teachers and students of Advanced United States History. The course includes over 240 pages of teacher class notes broken down into 52 lessons which are designed for use in classes that run from 45 to 90 minutes in length. The Student Workbook includes the essential elements of each lesson in an outline format. Each Unit has homework and classroom assignments that are specifically designed to teach students the skills and knowledge necessary to score well on the advanced exam. Unit exams (multiple choice, essay, and DBQ) and the grading rubric are based on the latest advanced model. The visuals that are included with the curriculum are integrated into the teacher lesson plans. The author taught Advanced US History for 25 years, conducted advanced teacher workshops, and has been an Advanced US History exam grader.

Testimonial: “Daily lesson plans include extensive summaries of historical knowledge, all including a healthy mixture of broad theme and specific fact. Particularly notable is the clear, generally concise, and balanced writing on topics that may lend themselves to more political than historical interpretation. The historical record—both traditional and revisionist—is not specific to author but is evident throughout. The guide is appropriate for both the new and experienced teacher. The writing is excellent. State-of-the-field literature is included. The visual material included in the guide is outstanding. Maps, charts, tables, newspapers, posters, and illustrations are well-chosen and will easily motivate student discussion. The accumulated material far surpasses the visual content found in a single textbook. Organization is clear and allows the teacher flexibility in decisions regarding how much time to be given each lesson.” --Frank Bunton, History Teacher, Stanton College Preparatory High School, Jacksonville, Florida
