Description

NOTE: Orders for this book will ship starting August 23, 2019.

Writing for the AP U.S. History exam isn’t easy, but it’s critical to your success: Your written responses represent 60% of your APUSH exam score. Stampede Learning Systems is here to help with a book packed with tips, techniques, and exercises to help you CRUSH it on the writing sections of the APUSH exam.

With over half of your score on the Advanced Placement U.S. History exam being based on your written responses, it’s a great opportunity to score big for those who are proficient in writing. However, it may seem daunting to understand how to gain proficiency in the technical form of writing that is expected for the AP exam. Additionally, a tremendous amount of information is covered in an American history course. These facts can add up to big challenges as you work through your AP U.S. History class and prepare for the exam.

This writing guide gives you a to-the-point breakdown of the types of essay questions that appear on the APUSH exam. We help you learn solid writing techniques to use in your responses to the Short Answer Questions (SAQs), Long Essay Question (LEQ), and Document-Based Question (DBQ) on the APUSH test. 

This APUSH writing guide includes:

  • A description of SAQ, LEQ, and DBQ writing prompts, including similarities and differences, and a rundown of what AP readers are looking for when they read your responses
  • Summaries of the events, trends, and people that are essential to know for the exam
  • Exercises to help reinforce your understanding of key dates and events, and how they relate to the exam question

INFORMATION FOR INSTRUCTORS

How are Stampede Learning Guides Different from Other Test Prep Books?

Our books aren’t like the run-of-the-mill APUSH test prep guides on the market. We don’t include multiple-choice practice test and answer keys. Instead, we focus on high-quality content and exercises to help students develop their critical thinking and historical writing skills.

Because our APUSH Writing Guide is in workbook format, each student should obtain her own copy. This book is best used as an instructor-guided resource, but it can more easily be used for self-guided test prep by independent learners. Writing effectively in the technical style required for historians is challenging (especially with the DBQ, due to the numerous requirements expected within this form of writing), especially for young writers. Our book breaks down the components of the skills involved in this kind of writing and then guides students to put the skill elements back together to complete a coherent essay.

Instructors love using this book in the classroom because grading and offering feedback on student writing is a time-consuming process; and the faster students become strong writers, the more manageable the teacher’s essay-grading workload becomes.

2nd Edition

  1. Rated 5 out of 5

    Ability to think but not write (Amazon review by Adele M on 1st edition)
    May 17, 2018
    This guide is a life-saver. My son is very gifted intellectually and verbally but he’s a disaster when trying to communicate on paper. This guide helps him to sort out what’s important and to write to the question asked instead of throwing together an essay littered with everything he knows about the subject in random order. This guide will make the difference in whether he “sinks or swims.” On the History AP Exam. If your teen is in a similar situation, you will be extremely happy with this book.

  2. Rated 5 out of 5

    Great book to help in writing for the AP test! (Amazon review by Pam H on 1st edition)

    Awesome! (Amazon review by katau on 1st edition)
    May 10, 2019
    This writing guide is super-organized and a huge help. Definitely supports students as they plan and practice for their AP History exams. Great tips/exercises/sample responses: a total life-saver for conscientious, stressed out students who want to focus and make their study time count.
