ALL WHEELS NEED
Planning for an APUSH period? See PERIOD RESOURCES at the bottom of this page. There I've curated some my lessons, short histories,
and artifacts (what I insist on calling primary sources!) for each period.
Just scroll down!
Also on this page is GENERAL RESOURCES, where you'll find more of my stuff plus other lessons and articles and podcasts and sites and I hope will be helpful for APUSH teachers.
Whatever you use in the classroom, I encourage you to make it your own. Get messy with it. Reimagine that wheel! Revise so it's a fit for your students and for you.
These APUSH lesson guides can be used for any period. Just switch out the content. Over the course of the year, they help students develop their historical thinking and writing.
Writing is messy. Writing is hard.
To write for APUSH, multiple skills are needed. These instructional videos
help students do the writing they
need to, skill by skill.
HISTORY CHASE LECTURES
Many are collaborations with my students! It's been great working these talented animators, narrators, and producers. The topics are APUSH relevant and they're (fairly) short!
INSPIRATION FOR APUSH LESSONS
There are so many great ideas for lessons out there. I like to study other lessons and "reimagine the wheel" for my classroom. Some lesson sites are here. So are sites that feature podcasts and video to learn about American history because of course one thing that's great about this job is all the history we keep learning!
COLLEGE BOARD STUFF
Need to get to those released DBQs? Want to look up what's in Period 6?

ROD's TECH RECS
There are so many amazing tech tools that are there to help support and extend historical thinking in the classroom.
Primary sources are artifacts that teach us about the times they came from. Dig for artifacts that are the bigees you'd expect, plus "curiosity artifacts." Hmmm. thehistorydig also features a thinking tool to help study these artifacts like historians. Let's get digging!
