However, teachers still struggle to find professional writing by working historians in a format useful to undergraduates. Also, in 2014,the College Board redesigned the AP U.S. History curriculum and assessments to require students to demonstrate a critical approach to historical writing by professional historians. These facts have increased demand among teachers for access to high-quality secondary material by professionalhistorians in a single, convenient publication.Past Forward: Articles from the Journal of American History selects some of the best articles from The Journal of American History to meet the needs of students and teachers of the U.S. history survey.
