Course Description
AP World History
The purpose of the AP World History course is to develop greater understanding of the development of global processes and contacts, in interaction with different types of human societies. This understanding is advanced through a combination of factual knowledge and analytical skills. The course highlights the nature of changes in international frameworks and their causes and consequences, as well as comparisons among major societies. The course emphasizes relevant factual knowledge deployed in conjunction with leading interpretive issues and types of historical evidence.
The AP World History course offers motivated students and their teachers the opportunity to immerse themselves in the processes that, over time, have resulted in the knitting of the world into a tightly integrated whole. AP World History offers an approach that lets students “do history” by guiding them through the steps a historian would take in analyzing historical events and evidence worldwide. The course offers balanced global coverage with Africa, the Americas, Asia, and Europe each represented.
Many entries in this syllabus are excerpted from the College Board’s Acorn Book for World History:

Themes This course is based on a global perspective of the world and human interactions from 8000 B.C.E. to present day, using the six themes outlined in theAP World History Course Descriptionconsistently throughout the course.
Patterns and impacts ofinteractionamong major societies: trade, war, diplomacy, and international organizations.
The relationship ofchange and continuityacross the world history periods covered in this course.
Impact oftechnology, economics, and demographyon people and the environment (population growth and decline, disease, manufacturing, migrations, agriculture, weaponry).
Systems ofsocial structure and gender structure(comparing major features within and among societies and assessing change).
Cultural,intellectual,andreligiousdevelopmentsandinteractionsamong and within societies.
Changes infunctions and structures of statesand in attitudes toward states and political identities (political culture), including the emergence of nation-state (types of political organization).
The themes are used throughout the course as unifying threads, helping students to put what is particular about each period or society into a larger framework. The themes also provide ways to make comparisons over time. The interaction of themes and periodization encourage cross-period questions.
Habits of Mind or Skills The AP World History course addresses habits of mind or skills in two categories: 1) those addressed by any rigorous history course, and 2) those addressed by a World History course.
Four Habits of Mind are in the first category: • Constructing and evaluating arguments: using evidence to make plausible arguments.
• Using documents and other primary data: developing the skills necessary to analyze point of view, context, and bias, and to understand and interpret information.
Developing the ability to assess issues of change and continuity over time.
• Enhancing the capacity to handle diversity of interpretations through analysis of context, bias, and frame of reference.
Three Habits of Mind are in the second category: • Seeing global patterns over time and space while also acquiring the ability to connect local developments to global ones and to move through levels of generalizations from the global to the particular.
• Developing the ability to compare within and among societies, including comparing societies' reactions to global processes.
• Developing the ability to assess claims of universal standards yet remaining aware of human commonalities and differences; putting culturally diverse ideas and values in historical context, not suspending judgment but developing understanding.
AP Examination
The AP World History Examination is given in May of each school year. It assesses habits of mind as well as content. For instance, in the multiple-choice section, maps, graphs, artwork, and quotations are used to determine student’s ability to assess primary data, while some questions focus on evaluating arguments, handling diversity of interpretation and drawing comparisons among societies, making generalizations and understanding historical context. In the essay section of the examination, the document-based question (DBQ) focuses on assessing student’s ability to construct arguments; use primary documents; analyze point of view, context and bias; and understand the global context. The remaining two essay questions focus on global patterns over time and space and comparisons within and among societies. Chronological Boundaries of the Course The course will have as its chronological framework the period from approximately 8000BCE to the present as listed in the periodization outline below.
Foundations (8000BCE – 600CE) 600- 1450 1450- 1750 1750- 1914 1914 - the present
Manageable Coverage
19-20% 22% 19-20% 19-20%  19-20%
For each time period, knowledge of major developments that illustrate or link the six thematic areas and of major civilizations in Asia, Africa, Europe, and the Americas is expected. Knowledge of year-to-year political events is not required.
Maximum Percentage Coverage of European History
Coverage of European history does not exceed 30% of the total course. This encourages increased coverage of topics that are important to Europe in the world and not just to Europe itself, as well as attention to areas of the world outside Europe.

Essays/Test Tests and quizzes cover information from the readings, handouts, and lectures and are usually in multiple-choice format. The multiple-choice questions are taken from test banks and are also teacher generated.
At the beginning of the school year the essays are take-home assignments. Later, more practice with in-class essay assignments using questions in the style of the AP World History Exam will be provided, as well as the AP Exam free-response questions posted ® on AP Central . Usually, tests are given at the end of each unit.
Homework/Notebook Students keep a spiral-bound notebook devoted exclusively to history, as well as a binder for handouts. They take lecture notes and outline notes on the textbook chapters to process the information. Students will keep a notebook for current events. Each week they choose a news article and connect the story with a theme in the course by writing comments in their notebook. Notebooks are collected periodically, and they are graded at the end of each nine weeks.
Class Participation Participation is a crucial part of the class. Students are expected to fully participate in Socratic Seminars, group projects presentations and daily discussion.
