Should you not find the information you are looking for on the website, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.orgThis year students will study "modern"history. Students will start with the discovery of the new world and end with the events of 9/11. The course is intended to provide the student with an understanding of how ancient, classical and post-classical history connects to the modern world. This course is designed to continue with the introduction from the ancient world and includes major emphasis upon the religious, cultural, and political aspects of European, African, and Asian history. A balanced approach will be taught covering the continents of Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania, and the Americas. The course will span from 8,000 B.C.E. to the present.
The AP World History Framework defines a set of shared historical thinking skills, which allows teachers to make more informed choices about appropriate ways of linking content and thinking skills. By framing historical processes and developments beyond a perceived list of facts, events, and dates, the key concepts help teachers and their students understand, organize, and prioritize historical developments within each period.
