These websites helped me with the FDR New Deal DBQ
This is a really cool show showing the industrialist and robber barons like jp Morgan, Carnagie, and Rockerfeller putting the money they made to national museums to boost nationalism, eduction, and to make new jobs during the great depression
National Museums Effect on the Country
This site helps with the Populist Progressive Era:
/ <---- okay, so i don't know how to make this a link, but this site has an outline of the entire history of the U.S.!!
REALLY GOOD SITE!!
CHECK THIS SITE OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
So many links to previous DBQs (since 1995) and major topics likely to come up in an essay question. Really helpful preparation for the AP Exam.
This site goes into a lot of detail about several important people and topics.
EPIC CRAM PACKET! very very very helpful.
- This is lecture by a Stanford university professor about the views of WEB Du Bois and Booker T. Washington and lots of African-American History. Could be useful on a DBQ or FRQ.
This link defines all APUSH terms that would normally be hard to find on the internet... ITS REALLY GOOD!!
Given the recent studies of chp. 16, I thought this was relevant:
It's centers the Battle of Little Big Horn. It kinda shuts down the "Custer's oh so noble and great last stand" stuff that you hear.
I'm nerdy enough that I found it interesting, but I figure watching these things is an easy way to get background knowledge for the ap test :)
^for les court cases ^
is a really good site to visit to get more pratcice multiple choice questions.
