AP World History: 2(A-E)
Instructor: Social St.   
Welcome to AP World History.  The purpose of the AP World History course is to trace the development of the course of human society, as well as to develop a better understanding of the global processes and interactions that have shaped the world in which we live.  We will be looking at the history of the world via the examination of six time periods.  In this class we will study 10,000 years of history over six continents.  European and United States history account for no more than 30% of the total class, so be prepared to look at societies and cultures from an entirely new perspective.  For students to better understand the complexity of the contemporary world, they need to comprehend and appreciate the past.  This course will embrace a truly global view of history and civilization.  Instead of concentrating on the regurgitation of names and dates, students will be analyzing cause and effect.  Students will be studying how things have changed over time and how ideas have remained constant through the years (change over time and continuity).  Students will also be spending a considerable amount of time reading, interpreting, and analyzing primary and secondary source documents along with charts and graphs.  Students will do this through developing and refining their analytical abilities and their critical thinking skills.   Get ready for a fun and challenging year.
