Resources and action items for the new AP (anti)U.S. History Curriculum Framework

Without state pushback, this new APUSH Curriculum Framework will go into effect this fall (2014). Without state pushback, APUSH teachers may have to ignore their own state’s U.S. History standards if they hope to prepare their students for success on the new APUSH exam – which will NOT cover material outside the new Framework.

We are not taking a “wait and see” approach while the College Board puts out e-mails and posts FAQs.  Educate yourself and others on the new Framework and then take action by completing the action items listed below the document and web articles.
