UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
April 16, 2015--The University of Wisconsin–River Falls History and Philosophy Department will host the 19th annual Advanced Placement U.S. History Review (APUSH) Day for high school students on April 27. Three to four hundred students and their teachers from area high schools in Minnesota and Wisconsin attend to prepare for the college placement exam in early May.
With faculty from the university, high school students discuss major themes in U.S. history and consider the connections between those themes as preparation for the APUSH test, which covers all of American history. Students who pass the test earning a three or better can qualify for up to six credits at UW campuses. Other campuses may offer similar credit.
UWRF history professors Kurt Leichtle and Ryan Fischer and UW-Stout history Professor Bob Zeidel facilitate the all-day event answering questions about the test and U.S. history in general. For more information, visit http://www.uwrf.edu/HIST/Events/APhistoryReviewDay.cfm or call 715-425-3164.
