Abstract

This year, half a million high school students will enroll in Advanced Placement History classes, in order to gain college credit and scholarships. This year’s redesigned curriculum has come under fire from largely conservative activist groups and school boards, for what they claim is a ‘revisionist’ history of the U.S. Daniel Faris argues that such criticisms are misplaced, and that the new curriculum is designed to provide a deeper understanding of the “why” of American history by providing both facts and critical analysis.
