After five years out of the classroom, I’m back at my current district, teaching AP U.S. History to a group of sophomore students. The course is part of a wider initiative whereby our high school students will have the opportunity to graduate with both their high school diploma and their associate degree from a local community college. My role is to use AP History as a vehicle to prepare students for reading college-level texts and providing analysis.
Quite naturally, I prepare my students by having them engage with college-level texts on U.S. history as part of their classwork. Thankfully, I don’t have parents demanding that my students not learn about certain truths of the United States’ past.
