Welcome to AP World History. I hope you are ready to become a student of history. This course will teach you not only the history of the world, it will also teach you the skills you need to think like a historian. I have assigned summer work to help me cover everything you need to learn for the AP Exam. There are two major assignments for this summer. First of all, you will need to take notes on Chapters 4 & 5 of your textbook which are on China and India. You can use any method of note taking that you like. They do need to be handwritten. I do not accept typed notes. I will give you a quiz on both chapters when we return to school. You can use your notes on the quiz; however, if you do not have notes you cannot take the quiz. I have provided you with the chapters and with a list of key terms for the chapters on this web page. Key terms are people, places, or concepts that you need to know in order to understand the events of the time period. Your second assignment is to create a World Religions graphic organizer and to write an essay on World Religions. The directions can be found in the World Religions word document. Everything is due the first day of class. Those students who fail to do the summer assignments will be reassigned to a regular World History course. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org If you have any questions. Have a great summer. See you in August.
