Welcome to Mr. Polanis' APUSH and U.S. History Homepage

United States History and Government

Grade 11 - 1 credit

This course culminates with a Regent’s examination in United States history, a New York State requirement for all students pass who will receive a high school diploma. The focus of this course is American development since 1865. In the post-Civil War to post-World War II period, there is an exploration of the shift from an agrarian-based society to an industrial society. American growth from isolationism to a commitment to global involvement is surveyed. Finally, America’s relation to a world in uncertain times is investigated. Throughout the course, basic Constitutional issues and the application of Constitutional principles to historical and contemporary life is emphasized.

United States History: Advanced Placement

Grade 11 - 1 credit

The Advanced Placement course in United States History is designed to provide students with the analytic skills and factual knowledge necessary to deal critically with the problems and materials in American history. This course prepares students for college-level academic work by making demands equivalent to a full year introductory college course. A.P. History is offered to students during their junior year as it also prepares them to meet social studies requirements for Goshen High School and the New York State Regents.
