About

The AP World History Program is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills they need to critically analyze world events and issues. It prepares high school students for intermediate and advanced college courses of the same or related areas of study by providing high student expectations and meaningful learning experiences. Students will not only learn about history, they will experience what it means to be an active, lifelong learner.

Tips and Norms:
  • Use Quizlet to remember facts 
  • Organize facts according to themes and concepts
  • Wikipedia is not evil. 
  • Historical essay writing is different than writing essays for English class (refer to the attachments below).
  • If you do nothing outside of class, you will likely not pass the exam, which is the reason you are taking this class.
  • Connecting ideas is the name of the game, not remember facts (but without facts you'll have nothing to connect). 
  • Crash Course videos are helpful after you've studied the material and want a refresher. If you walk away from a video and don't refer back to your notes to add something new, you've wasted your time.
