AP World History
AP World History is a full-year course designed to give students a comprehensive understanding of historical trends in human civilizations. Students will learn how to support theories with historical evidence, evaluate primary evidence/documents, and make comprehensive evaluations of historical frameworks. The course units include text-based content, on- and off-computer exercises, special projects, quizzes, and tests that appeal to today's learners.
