AP World History 2017-2018 All YearJustin Thomason

Overview

Advanced Placement World History is a rigorous college-level course that may be used to earn university credits. In this course, students will study the breadth of the world’s history dating back to around 10,000 BCE. The College Board requires that AP World History makes an effort to cover each region of the globe and limits the coverage of European history to a maximum of 20% of the course. Students will be expected to learn and understand global processes; continuity and change throughout history; comparisons between civilizations, belief systems, and political structures; and able to utilize specific historical thinking and writing skills.
