  Advance Placement World History is a program that follows a course of study similar to that of a college introductory course in World History. Throughout the year, we will be looking for patterns in historical events, many of which revolve around the contacts among different human societies. Our greatest emphasis will be on the last one thousand years of human history. To understand history, it is important to study not only the events that occur in time, but the methodology of those events. In Advance Placement World History, we will examine not only what happened, but also why it happened. We will look at historical continuity, along with change. Our studies will include the examination of world cultures, human institutions, the effects of new technologies, and world geography. It is my goal to give students the tools to obtain a score on their AP test, which could amount to credit for a 3-credit college course. Strong writing skills and advanced cognitive aptitude are required to succeed on the college level and it is for this reason that these skills will be emphasized in this course.
