Unit 7: A Late Agrarian Age or The Early Modern Era
"There's no success like failure, and failure's no success at all" - Bob Dylan
The World History AP course goes tremendously further than traditional history courses in requiring students to interpret primary sources, draw inferences based on larger repetitive themes and, in a very real way, become historians. While this course offers an opportunity to learn how to think critically and interact with the world on new levels, it would be untrue to proclaim the course does not have series of idiosyncrasies that make it a more challenging course…like teaching 10,000 years of history, test-taking and essay-writing skills. I believe, however, that with organization and preparation, with academic transparency and a commitment to joining this truly learning community, the select few who have chosen to embark down this path this year will be forever changed by the experience.
