AP Human Geography and AP World History

Mr. Shawn McCusker, Social Studies Department Supervisor, shared that LHS decided to offer these courses because so many students take honors level courses, and excel in them, so offering these classes at the AP level is the natural next challenge. At LHS, many students are taking AP classes all throughout high school, so these are a good way to prepare for future classes. AP Human Geography was most logically offered because LHS has always had a strong geography program and it only made sense to extend the course. Both classes are intended to be freshman and sophomore classes, but can be offered to other grade levels depending on availability. Many students taking World History Honors took the AP test, but there was no course to support it, and teachers ended up putting in effort to help these kids succeed on the test. Mr. McCusker stated that a student must be independent if they want to take these courses. Mr. Wahl will be teaching AP Human Geography and Mr. Thompson will be teaching AP World History. These courses will have a heavy curriculum and will be designed to prepare students for the AP Exam.
