In this revised, expanded, and updated second edition, Paul Swendson - in a series of comprehensive essays - puts into written form what he has spent more than thirteen years doing as a community college history instructor: making American history “manageable, meaningful, and relevant” for everyday people. In addition to breaking down the fundamental topics of American history in a concise, easy to read fashion, this is a work of political and social commentary, relating the experiences, struggles, and decisions of past Americans to life in the United States today. The goal of this book, like all good history teaching and writing, is to help its readers become a little wiser, and raising the essential questions is often more important than providing the “right” answers.

Kaplan's, 5-Steps, Crash Course and the others are great resources for reviewing in the last month before the exam, but Tamm's Textbook Tools workbooks accompany students all year long. This AP U.S. History companion is filled with vocab and assignments that follow the Brinkley book for all 32 chapters. They can be used as regular weekly assignments or reviews. They can be used on short notice if there is a sub, or be done as regular homework. All you need is the textbook. Teachers can copy at will, or the book can be used as a student consumable. When publishers started putting their content online, it opened a niche for traditional school assignments, a void filled by this series. Additionally, whether the textbook itself is written in ink or electrons, many students still like to write and keep notes for themselves, and portfolios still matter. These activities challenge students to apply the concepts, give examples, and diagram each chapter. Find TTT on FB.
