Controversy and APUSH

I am doing some work with the College Board this weekend in New York City and one of my colleagues is Brenda Santos who wrote a very succinct article explaining the changes in the new APUSH test in an article for the American Historical Association.

The APUSH changes have been in the news from a defense from the left in the LA Times and an attack from the right from the National Review.  Of course there are also the principled students in Jefferson County, CO who have walked out of class as a protest to their school board who is considering dropping the APUSH course.  Even the College Board came out this week in support of the students.   Of course all these actions, school board, civil disobedience, etc. are good fodder for government students.

This redesign is a disaster. First they release the only sample exam teachers have to work with - all to appease the nutjob RNC - and now I get an email saying that they are changing the time allowed by students for two sections of the new test.

College Board could not have rolled this out in a worse manner that is more disrespectful to teachers and students. How are we supposed to prepare our kids when CB keeps moving the targets?

I think it will look a lot more nice. I think school will have all most everything in it use technology. I think that schools will look a lot different.
