Written to reflect the latest College Board standards, By the People, 2nd Edition, fully supports the AP. U.S. History curriculum framework and guides students in thinking the way historians think about evidence. Using chronological reasoning, comparison, contextualization, interpretation, and synthesis, students are able to understand that history is comprised of the stories of diverse every-day people as well as famous leaders—and that students have an integral part to play in the world they live in.
The second edition builds upon the strengths of the first edition by reflecting current research, more diversity, and providing more features, such as “When Historians Disagree,” that reinforce critical and historical thinking.
NEW! A new comprehensive Annotated Teacher’s Edition provides guidance on key concepts and subtopics, student-centered classroom activities, additional resources and lessons, and special Historical Thinking exercises.
By the People offers a complete collection of support materials, such as the new Historical Practices, Skills, and Course Themes Workbook for AP® United States History, written by Ted Dickson, Test Prep Workbook for AP U.S. History, DBQ Workbook, and Reading and Notetaking Study Guide. These resources help students of all ability levels with support for reading, understanding, active learning, writing skills, and preparation for the AP exam.
