Course Description: 2009-2010
Welcome! The purpose of the AP World History course is to develop greater understanding of the
evolution of global processes and contacts, in interaction with different types of human societies. This
understanding is advanced through a combination of selective factual knowledge and appropriate
analytical skills. The course highlights the nature of changes in global frameworks and their causes and
consequences, as well as comparisons among major societies. Periodization forms the organizing
principle to address change and continuity throughout the course. Students will be expected to complete
homework daily in order to develop the analytical and writing skills necessary for success in a college-
level history course. To this end, the course devotes considerable time to the critical evaluation of primary
and secondary sources, increased reading, analysis of historical facts, presentations, and essays that
include the DBQ, the comparative essay, and the change-over-time essay. This course emphasizes themes
and addresses the habits of mind needed in order for the student to develop the necessary skills to be
successful. Specific themes provide further organization to the course, along with consistent attention to
contacts among societies that form the core of world history as a field of study.

Progress Reports:
You may check grades online using PowerSchools and a school-provided password.
Late Work: NO late work will be accepted!
Absences/Make-up Work:
Keep absences to a minimum. Upon return to school, it is the STUDENT’S responsibility to make-up
any assignments or tests missed. If the work is not completed during the allotted time, the work will
become a zero. Work missed as a result of an unexcused absence will result in a zero.
Make-up Exams and Quizzes:
Upon return to class, after an excused absence(s), a student has one school day for each excused absence
to make-up the missed exam or quiz. You will need to schedule a time before or after school to take the
missed exam or quiz no later than one week after the original scheduled date. Please speak with me
regarding any special circumstances.
Long-Term Project Policy:
A long-term project is a project that is assigned at least two weeks before the day it is due. Long-term
projects are due on the assigned due date, as defined in writing, in advance, by the instructor. If the
student is absent the project is still due on the day assigned.
Any student who is swept and wants credit for a due assignment must turn the work into the instructor the
same day of the sweep. It is the STUDENT’S responsibility to get any assigned material missed due to
being swept and have it prepared on the due date.
