The effects of technology, economics, and demography on people and the environment ( population growth and decline, disease, labor systems, manufacturing, migrations, agriculture, weaponry) 3.

2 Course organization AP World History is the equivalent of a college course. You are expected to read the assigned textbook pages and other material to be successful in this course. You will also be expected to take notes, create charts and complete other assigned work that will give you the tools to be successful on the AP exam and in college. The information will generally be presented by lecture notes, discussion and different types of group work. Students will be required to take the 2 nd and 3 rd quarter exams (regardless if you can exempt the exam) Exams can be cumulative. Students are required to take the AP Exam at the end of the year in May. Assessments There will be an assessment at the end of every chapter or combination of chapters. Quizzes will take the form of multiple choice or essay. Tests will take the form of multiple choice and essay. Essays will generally take the form of comparative, change over time type of essays, DBQ interpretive responses. Course Outline Term 1 SUMMER READING ASSESSMENT BASED ON UNIT I & Big History eras 2 & 3 We will combine the summer read with items below, most of which were discussed in the reading.
