AP U.S. History - Modified DBQs
2020 Exam Resources
for AP U.S. History
To help you better prepare for the streamlined 2020 AP U.S. History exam, Mike Henry has modified two of the DBQs from Threads of History to align with the 2020 format. Those DBQs are provided below as PDF and PowerPoint files. The PowerPoints are intended for "virtual in-class" use. In the 3rd Edition of Threads of History, DBQ #1 deals with Period 1 content, which is not covered on the 2020 exam, and so that question was not included here.
Please feel free to send any additional questions to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
