Advanced Placement World History
As a survey course, this class focuses on themes throughout history that serve as unifying threads, helping students to put what is particular about each period or society into a larger framework and providing ways to make comparisons over time. These themes include the impact of interaction in and among societies; the relationship of change and continuity across the world; the impact of technology and demography on people and the environment; the importance of social and gender structures; the triumph and failures of cultural and intellectual developments; and changes in the functions and structures of political systems at home and abroad. The course covers 1200AD to the present.
Note: students cannot take this course and AP European History because the curriculums are too similar.
