This book describes results from the 1994 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) assessment in U.S. history, conducted at grades 4, 8, and 12. Included in this report card are the results of students' achievement at each grade and within various subgroups of the general population. The report discusses the relationships between student performance and instructional and home background variables. This information gives educators a context for evaluating the U.S. history achievement of students and the results that may be used to guide reform efforts. Chapters include: (1) "NAEP 1994 U.S. History Assessment"; (2) "U.S. History Results for the Nation and Regions"; (3) "U.S. History Achievement Levels"; (4) "Contexts in which Students Learn History"; and (5) "What Students Know and Can Do in U.S. History." A conclusion, three appendices, 52 tables, and 13 figures complete the book. (EH)
In this absorbing chronicle of the role of race in US history, David R. Roediger explores how the idea of race was created and recreated from the 1600's to the present day. From the late seventeenth century--the era in which DuBois located the emergence of "whiteness"--through the American revolution and the emancipatory Civil War, to the civil rights movement and the emergence of the American empire, How Race Survived US History reveals how race did far more than persist as an exception in a progressive national history. Roediger examines how race intersected all that was dynamic and progressive in US history, from democracy and economic development to migration and globalization. Exploring the evidence that the USA will become a majority "nonwhite" nation in the next fifty years, this masterful account shows how race remains at the heart of American life in the twenty-first century.
Introduction to U.S. History: The Civil War documents the war that transformed America, ending slavery and unifying the nation around the principles of freedom. This collection examines the war in all its complexity; its battles and campaigns, its political and religious aspects, the experiences of its leaders and common soldiers, the home front and the military campground, from its causes to its consequences. The archive provides access to a wide variety of documents: personal narratives and memoirs, pamphlets and political speeches, sermons and songs, regimental histories and photograph albums, legal treatises and children's books, as well as documents pertaining to Black Troops, the Home Front, Foreign Relations, and William Tecumseh Sherman, among other topics.

'Outline of U.S. History' is a publication of the U.S. Department of State. The first edition (1949-50) was produced under the editorship of Francis Whitney, first of the State Department Office of International Information and later of the U.S. Information Agency. Richard Hofstadter, professor of history at Columbia University, and Wood Gray, professor of American history at The George Washington University, served as academic consultants. D. Steven Endsley of Berkeley, California, prepared additional material. It has been updated and revised extensively over the years by, among others, Keith W. Olsen, professor of American history at the University of Maryland, and Nathan Glick, writer and former editor of the USIA journal, Dialogue. Alan Winkler, professor of history at Miami University (Ohio), wrote the post-World War II chapters for previous editions. This new edition has been completely revised and updated by Alonzo L. Hamby, Distinguished Professor of History at Ohio University. Professor Hamby has written extensively on American politics and society.
This is, to the best of our knowledge, the world's first open content US History Textbook.This textbook is based initially on the College Entrance Examination Board test in Advanced Placement United States History. This seems to be the best reference on which to build a textbook, since it is a standard on the subject and covers what most U.S. history students study in high school and college. Overall, however, the content and structure may in time vary from all other books. Besides the regular wikibook rules governing unbiased writing, the only other guideline should be that everything should be kept more or less in chronological order and divided into logical chapters. Everything else is left pretty much to the individual authors that elect to join the project.This book is the hard copy version of the WikiBook published online at en.wikibooks.org. This printed version is published under the GNU-FDL license.

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.
