AP World History

AP World History is a college-level survey course designed to introduce students to a thematic approach to learning about human history and to prepare students for more advanced studies at the high school and college levels. Attention will also be given to preparing students for the AP World History exam, including extensive examination of primary and secondary sources, comparative and analytical historical research, and effective essay writing. Special emphasis will be placed on learning the historian’s key skills of interpreting evidence, analyzing point of view; assessing change and continuity over time; and comparative analysis, both across societies and across time periods. Students will be responsible for completing a summer assignment for this course.
