Classes and Descriptions


Dual Enrollment American History

Statewide dual credit classes are college-level courses taught at the high-school level by trained high-school teachers.  Course learning objectives are developed by Tennessee high school and college faculty in order to ensure alignment with post-secondary standards.  All statewide dual credit courses are approved by the Consortium for Cooperative Innovative Education.

All students enrolled in a statewide dual credit course take the online challenge exam, which is used to assess mastery of the postsecondary-level learning objectives. Students which meet or exceed the exam ‘cut score’ receive college credit that can be applied to any Tennessee public postsecondary institution. Exam scores are reported on the high school transcript to ensure postsecondary credit is accurately awarded. 

Facing History

Facing History and Ourselves is an international educational and professional development organization whose mission is to engage  students of diverse backgrounds in an examination of racism, prejudice, and Anti-Semitism in order to promote the development of a more humane and informed citizenry. By studying the historical development of the Holocaust and other examples of genocide, students make the essential connection between history and the moral choices they confront in their own lives.


AP World History

In AP World History: Modern, students investigate significant events, individuals, developments, and processes from 1200 to the present. Students develop and use the same skills, practices, and methods employed by historians: analyzing primary and secondary sources; developing historical arguments; making historical connections; and utilizing reasoning about comparison, causation, and continuity and change over time. The course provides six themes that students explore throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places: humans and the environment, cultural developments and interactions, governance, economic systems, social interactions and organization, and technology and innovation.

Pre-AP World History

Pre-AP courses are designed to support all students across varying levels of readiness.  They are not honors or advanced courses.  Participation in Pre-AP courses allows students to slow down and focus on the most essential and relevant concepts and skills.  Students have frequent opportunities to engage deeply with text, sources, and data, as well as compelling higher-order questions and problems.  Across Pre-AP courses, students experience shared instructional practices and routines that help them develop and strengthen the important critical thinking skills they will need to employ in high school, college, and life.  Pre-AP World History and Geography focuses deeply on the concepts and skills that have maximum value for high school, college, careers, and civic life.  The course builds students’ essential skills and helps to prepare them for a range of AP and social science coursework during high school, including AP Human Geography and all three AP history courses.
