Details: Product Description The new edition of American Pageant, the leading program for AP U.S. history, now reflects the redesigned AP Course and Exam that begins with the 2014-2015 school year. The 16th edition helps prepare students for success on the AP Exam by 1) helping them practice historical thinking skills, pulling together concepts with events, and 2) giving them practice answering questions modeled after those they'll find on the exam. The new edition adds a two-page opener/preview to every chapter, guiding students through the main points of the chapter and using questions and elements tied to the AP Curriculum Framework to help them internalize the chapter more conceptually. Also new are additional End-of-Part multiple-choice and short answer questions reflecting the changes to the exam. Practice DBQs and other free response essay questions will still be found at the back of the book. About the Author David M. Kennedy received his Ph.D. from Yale University. He is the Donald J.
