This test bank includes twelve original stimulus-sets of multiple-choice questions, which are written in the new style which came into use on the 2015 AP US History test. Each stimulus set includes a short primary- or secondary- source excerpt, and 2-5 questions over the excerpt. The bank includes a total of 40 questions.
The questions partially cover AP US History Period 7 (1890-1945) and are related to World War I, 1920s, Great Depression, New Deal, and World War II. They are aligned to the revised College Board Curriculum Framework
and to the nine historical thinking skills
emphasized on the revised AP test. Some of the questions require knowledge of illustrative examples from the Curriculum Framework, while others require knowledge only of the themes from the Framework.
Stimuli for the questions in the bank include excerpts from:
*map of the Great Migration 1916-1930
*Woodrow Wilson, Fourteen Points, 1919
*Oliver Wendell Holmes, majority opinion in Schenck v. US, 1919
*vacuum cleaner advertisement from 1920
*’the Only Way to Handle It,’ nativist cartoon from 1921
*TS Eliot, ‘the Waste Land,’ 1922
*Marcet Haldeman-Julius, ‘Clarence Darrow’s Two Great Trials,’ 1927
