This collection of interactive multiple-choice challenges has something for every AP history student. Topics cover U.S. history from early discovery and settlement to Kennedy's New Frontier and the Americas since 1970.

tag(s): advanced placement (25)

In the Classroom

Use this site to help students review for the AP exam - although teachers not in an AP course could also use these free quizzes for the SOL's or other end of the year assessments. Save the site to your teacher web page to allow students to access it both in and out of the classroom. While they are a little hokey looking, the information is effective and of good quality. Teachers can have students take the practice quizzes in or out of the classroom to assess what subjects need the most review before their end assessment.

Bookmark this site on your classroom computer or suggest that parents make it available to their children as an at-home reference.
