Advanced Topics in United States HistoryThis is a college level course. Students in AT US in the Alternative School are enrolled in American Studies. However, they meet an additional two periods per week to do advanced study in history. Students use a college-level text and do additional readings from books including Howard Zinn's A People's History of the United States, Robert Johnson's History of the American People, and excerpts from monographs, journal articles, and primary sources. Students write at least one analytic essay each quarter (in addition to their work for American Studies) and take quarterly exams.Homework:
