How much homework is in U.S. History?

AP® United States History is a rigorous, college-level course. The Academy recommends this course and corresponding AP® exam for advanced 12th grade students and up.

During a typical week in this course, students will complete the following coursework:

  • 60–90 minutes of live class instruction
  • Audio lecture 
  • 1 chapter textbook reading
  • 1 chapter of documentary reading
  • Primary source reading

Throughout the year, students will also complete the following tasks:

  • Test every 5 weeks
