AP World History

HanRaj

Life can only be lived forward and understood backward. To understand and respond to the challenges of the future, we must recognize and appreciate that our modern world is the product of historical and geographic relationships.

Advanced Placement World History is a challenging survey course that emphasizes greater understanding of the development of global processes and contacts. This course highlights the nature of changes in international frameworks, their causes and consequences, as well as comparisons among major societies. Periodization forms the central organizing principle for dealing with change and continuity throughout the course. Five themes provide further organization as a frame of reference for the course: interaction between humans and the environment; development and interaction of cultures; state-building, expansion and conflict; creation, expansion, and interaction of economic systems; and the development and transformation of social structures. We analyze these themes by utilizing a “Spice Chart” acronym.
