Skirting the System: AP US History

Filed in Uncategorized by on August 2, 2014 0 Comments
Now that we have education reform in English Language Arts and Math, along with the Next Generation Science Standards coming down the line, are you ready to learn what they have in store for AP  US History or APUSH?
Join a Nationwide Conference Call to hear how the AP’s new U.S. History Framework is pushing curriculum to the left. Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee and American Principles in Action invite all concerned parents, grandparents and citizens, whether you have students in AP courses or not, to join this very important conference call.  A panel of experts will educate you on what the College Board has in store for America’s AP U.S. History students and will explain specific steps that can be taken to push back against this egregious attack on the U.S. History standards and curriculum.    Without state pushback, this new APUSH Curriculum Framework will go into effect this fall (2014). Without state pushback, APUSH teachers may have to ignore their own state’s U.S. History standards if they hope to prepare their students for success on the new APUSH exam – which will NOT cover material outside the new Framework.
Conference call details: Date: Monday, August 4, 2014 Time: 8:00 p.m. EST Conference Dial-in Number: (530) 881-1000 Participant Access Code: 632867#
Panel includes:   • Larry Kreiger- Teacher of SAT classes for over 20 years and AP classes for over 35 years, specializing in AP U. S. History (APUSH).  • Ken Mercer, Texas State Board of Education (SBOE) member who has been working aggressively to delay the rollout of the new APUSH Framework.  • Jane Robbins- Attorney and a senior fellow with the American Principles Project in Washington, D.C.
This new APUSH is going to be implemented this fall.  It’s imperative we work together to get this new reform stopped.
