The Advanced Placement courses sponsored by the College Board are famous for the rigor and their effectiveness in preparing high school students for college-level expectations, especially in subjects such as American History. Thus, the redesign of the Advanced Placement US History (APUSH) course which goes into effect in Fall 2014, has created a host of new concerns for AP educators who are already under great pressure to help guide their students toward high-achieving test scores. We hope to support those educators with resources and models at Lincoln’s Writings that can help better prepare APUSH students for Lincoln and Civil War-related short answer and document-based questions (DBQs).
