I have been teaching World and US History at a Title I public high school for the past nine years and AP Art History for the past seven years. My curriculum has proven itself in my annual AP Exam scores and my classes have consistently performed well above the national average. The AP curriculum is designed to meet the standards provided by the new framework from College Board. The curriculum for World and US History has been built utilizing the state standards as well as the incorporation of the new content literacy standards for reading and writing.
My teaching style is heavy lecture and discussion based. I try and provide my students with the appropriate tools to enable them to think for themselves. I provide the information that they need to know for each unit and on subsequent exams. I also incorporate project based learning throughout my curriculum.
