Advanced Placement World History
Summer Assignment 2015
Welcome to AP World History! Over the course of the year we will engage in a rigorous and sweeping
survey of 10,000 years of the history of humankind. You will also learn to synthesize historical
information and write three different types of essays in preparation for the AP World History Exam in
mid-May, 2016.
The primary purpose of this summer assignment is to help you acquire the base knowledge necessary for
instant immersion in AP World History once the 2015-16 academic year begins. There are four sections
to the summer assignment. Be sure to read each section carefully and follow the instructions precisely.
Please remember that you are responsible for your own pacing. Therefore, you should review all sections
early in the summer and develop a “game plan” with benchmark dates for yourself.
NOTE: If you do not already have a box of colored pencils, you should purchase a box for the geography
section of the assignment as well as the school year.
If you have any questions, please email me at [email protected]
Due: September 8th
Worth: 100 points
