The AHA Supports the Revised Framework for the US AP History Exam

AHA, October 2014

The release of a new framework for the Advanced Placement examination in United States history has provoked controversy over the purpose, nature, and content of the AP course. The AHA supports the ­direction that the College Board has taken with this new approach to Advanced Placement history education, as indicated in the framework and in the sample exam released by the College Board.
