World History AP Instructor: Ms. Macy
AP World History covers the history of the world from 600 C.E. to the present with an introduction unit on the period before (covering around 8000 B.C.E. to 600 C.E.). The course emphasizes patterns of change and the connections between the various world cultures throughout the time period being studied.
Students will gain an understanding of the global experiences of humanity and be able to apply that knowledge to their growth and development as “world citizens."
This course has two major goals:
- To prepare students to be successful on the AP World History Exam.
- To provide students with an understanding of why the world developed the way it did.
Recommended: B grade or better in recent English course and good writing skills.
