Inspiring student success—For AP United States History Courses

  • The new By the People, 3rd Edition has been reviewed and revised to account for the latest developments in historical scholarship with special attention to current developments in diversity, equity, and inclusion. Revised and updated for currency to cover the last five years, including debates about immigration, Black Lives Matter, new religious tensions, the 2020 presidential election, the COVID pandemic, and more.

  • By The People fully supports the College Board’s AP U.S. History curriculum framework and guides students in thinking the way historians think about evidence. Using chronological reasoning, comparison, contextualization, interpretation, and synthesis, students are able to understand that history is comprised of the stories of diverse, every-day people, as well as famous leaders—and that students have an integral part to play in the world they live in.

Prepares AP Students for Success

  • The third edition builds upon the strengths of the first and second editions by reflecting current research, more diversity, and providing more features, such as “When Historians Disagree,” that reinforce critical and historical thinking. In addition, the AP Practice Tests have been revised to more closely reflect the actual AP exam and better prepare students for the types of questions they will eventually encounter.

  • Revel® from Pearson improves results by empowering students to actively participate in learning. More than a digital textbook, Revel delivers an engaging blend of author content, media, and assessment.

  • With Revel, students read and practice in one continuous experience. Interactive content and assessments integrated throughout the narrative provide opportunities for students to explore and apply concepts. And Revel is mobile and user-friendly, so students can learn on the go—anytime, anywhere, on any device.
