Welcome to the website for World History Advanced Placement , 2017-2018. This course is a college level course which will cover the time period 8000 BCE to the Present. We will be spending a large amount of time focusing on the skills and content you will need to earn credit on the College Board World History test in May, 2018. Below you will find the course syllabus, class expectations and a supply list. Please read now and come to class the first day ready to go! I will be adding assignments, powerpoints, and, when applicable, copies of chapters that students will be reading and completing notes on from our text, World Civilizations, the Global Experience, Seventh Edition by Stearns et.al. For those students who wish to begin reading and completing notes, Chapters 1 and 2 from Period I of College Board Advanced Placement World History are now on the web page.
I have also included a reading calendar for the first grading period. You should print this up and put it in your 3 ring binder. Be advised that the calendar is subject to change dependent upon school activities. Also, you will find two powerpoints that will familiarize you with Chapter 1. Please take the time to watch them and familiarize yourself with the subject matter.
