As many secondary schools transition to Standards Based and Standards Referenced Learning and Grading, teachers can benefit from examples of Standards within their content area. This is especially true in AP courses where it is difficult to narrow down vast amounts of skills and knowledge into a small number of standards. These are four standards that have been used with success in a traditional APUSH classroom. These standards are broad in order to encompass multiple assessments. You can create more specific rubrics, or "Sub Standards" within each of theses standards in order to give students more specific feedback.
