Advanced Placement World History Course Texts Stearns, Peter N., Michael Adas, Stuart B. Schwartz, and Marc Jason Gilbert. ​
World Civilizations: The Global Experience​
, 6th edition. Pearson. Course Description: AP World History is an academic year­long course that is meant to be the equivalent of a freshman college course and can earn students college credit. This course covers the history of the world from approximately 10,000 B.C.E. to the present. The course examines the history of human experience from a global perspective. It stresses the linkage between people and states formed through trade, the migration of people and ideas, the mobilization of mass society, revolutions, and the impact of technology upon humankind. The students in this course are expected to do a considerable amount of reading in both the major text and supplementary sources. This course is designed to continue the development of historical research and writing skills. The student is required to complete all summer assignments, which will be collected on the first day of AP class in August. ​
Important: ​
This is a college­credit course and, as such, is more labor­intensive than normal World History. The students will be responsible for their own work, both in class and as homework. Summer Assignment: Make sure to check out your textbook before you leave for the summer. Your summer assignment has been designed to help support your learning for the coming school year. It is imperative that you complete this work before returning to school in August, this will be collected the first day of class, the teacher reserves the right to ask you to drop the class if this work is not completed by the first day of school. If you plan and space out your assignment you should not be overwhelmed. You will have 5 chapters to read from your textbook (Stearns, Peter N., Michael Adas, Stuart B. Schwartz, and Marc Jason Gilbert. ​
