AP World History: Modern

AP World History: Modern

Prerequisite: Literature I and Writing I (As recommended by AP, students must be able to read college-level texts and write grammatically correct, complete sentences.)

Course Description: The AP World History Modern course is an academic, yearlong course with an emphasis on non-western history from 1200 to the present. The AP College Board has organized the course into four historical time periods (Period 1: 1200-1450, Period 2: 1450-1750, Period 3: 1750-1900, and Period 4: 1900-Present) while these four time periods are further divided into nine subtopics that are designed to be examined through a thematic approach: Humans and the Environment, Cultural Developments and Interactions, Governance, Economic Systems, Social Interactions and Organization, and Technology and Innovation. The course relies heavily on college-level texts, primary source documents, and outside readings. Special emphasis is given to historical writing through essay and document-based questions as well as historical thinking skills and reasoning processes. This course fulfills the Modern World History graduation requirement.
