uh...i'm taking ap history this year too and i haven't had american history since 9th grade.. so i guess our curriculum is the same.. lol.. it sucks
uh, try .. the industrial revolution - basically a time in the united states where factories were up all over the place and the economy was booming, gilded age - just as the name suggests, a time where the government's corruption was camoflauged by lies and fabrications of success, manifest destiny - western expansion, you could elaborate on the acquisition of the territory of louisiana from napoleon, american revolution?.. self explanatory, and since this is a euro/american forum, i'm sure you can get both sides of the story relatively easily, imperialism in hawaii, cold war between russia.. that's all i can really think of off the top of my head..

shit well, i can't find it, apparently after leaving that computer alone for about half a year made it stop cooperating with me. uh.. lets see.. a brief summary of what i still remember.. basically the industrial revolution started off with tycoons like rockefeller and carnegie, they ran the oil companies and steel factories respectively. steel industry was made possible by the bessemer process, which greatly hightened the efficiency of steel production and thats how carnegie made it big, rockefeller.. well he was just lucky i guess. um, despite the growing economy, the gap between rich and poor grew bigger cuz the poor people couldn't find many jobs, especially american born people since immigrants were coming in working for cheaper.. i think.. they lived in tenement buildings, which were basically large apartment complexes fitting hundreds of people in it, the only thing was that it was in the worst part of the city, with sewage and feces every where and each complex had one public bathroom. so the poor had a rough time and all and child labor was still in effect, the minimum wage kept the poor in debt and kept the rich well.. rich. that's all i can really recall... i don't even remember what year this was in, but you can find out pretty easily.. uh yeah hope it helps. school doesn't start for me until monday. lol

[edit] i'll revise it, i don't mind.
