Welcome to Scott Peoples' Pre-IB US History class page!

Students who enroll in this class must be independent learners capable of using an advanced text, and their academic skills should be above grade level. This is a fast-paced, largely chronological course focusing on political, social, economic, and geographical concepts of US History. The intent of this class is to prepare sophomores for the academic and intellectual rigors of junior level IB World History, for which this class is a prerequisite. As an advanced course, this course goes beyond the curriculum expectations of a standard course offering by increasing the depth and complexity to engage students in dynamic, high‐level learning. The pace of an advanced course may be faster than that of a “standard” course. Note: At FHS students are expected to complete a National History Day project and take the AP US History exam.

    The Bill of Rights Institute has created a series of free, short videos (there are 9 in the series) that look at US History through an economic lens and are built around the APUSH syllabus. They're pretty good - might give you some ammo if you're able to address the economic angle of whatever the essay topics turn out to be:

    We've watched several episodes or clips of this 1999 ABC News special as we've looked at the 20th century - most recently, we saw the first 28 minutes of "A New World," which covers the Reagan Administration and the 1980s. The link to that episode is included below; ABC has made the remainder of them freely available on YouTube.
