This map set is a sample collection of maps that can be used across time periods to teach AP United States history. The maps and strategies were compiled by Alexander Uryga, one of the Leventhal Map & Education Center's 2020 Carolyn A. Lynch teacher fellows. Any of the maps could be used at the beginning of a unit of study to introduce major themes or historical time periods and events.
Many maps have fuller detail and context. Click on any map image to view it on our collections page.
This set also contains a list of instructional strategies for teaching with maps and a DBQ organizer for use with the maps and/or other documents.
