For each chapter we will be creating notecards that we can use throughout the year for the final and AP Exam. The notecard assignment will be given out on Friday and will be turned in the next Tuesday at the start of class.
Use a 4×6 card. Write the definition on back and the term on the front. Under definition, explain how the term fits with one of the themes from AP (by using the term to answer the theme question). Look at the link on how to for more information.
On August 13 at 6:30 pm there will be an open house for all AP World History parents. This open house provides a forum for questions. Please join us in learning all about AP World History and the benefits of AP.
For each chapter this year we will be completing essential questions. These questions will help you understand the material in a more in-depth manner. The questions will also help you with the connections to other events and themes in World History. These questions will be beneficial when it comes to quizzes and essays.
