At the beginning of each new year, I ask students to complete an opening survey regarding their interest and knowledge of history. Here are the results:
|World War II always ranks as a favorite time period of students! I'm glad to see the American Revolution making a comeback.|
|I also ask students to name historic sites or places that they have visited recently. St. Augustine and Washington, DC top the list.|
This year also begins the new College Board Curriculum Framework for AP U.S. History. This new framework represents the largest change to "APUSH" in forty years and brings with it some notable controversy.
Some of the headlines:
- The College Board's Attack on American History (Brietbart)
- Response by College Board President David Coleman
- Newsweek Article regarding the controversy
- The National Association of Scholars Report on the new framework (very detailed!)
I look forward to the journey ahead with all of my students!
