Summary

In 2014, College Board rolled out a new AP® U.S. History course, which centered less on memorizing content and more on developing skills. Since then, the course has been modified here and there, but very little has changed in AP® textbooks—content is still king. Until now. Fabric of a Nation is the first book to truly embrace this dramatic shift in the AP® course and in how history is taught.


Built from the ground up by long-time AP® leaders Jason Stacy and Matthew Ellington, this book offers a new approach to AP® US History by seamlessly integrating:



  • A brief historical narrative

  • AP® skills practice

  • Primary source documents

  • Exact alignment to the AP® course

Now, that’s revolutionary!
