AP World History: Modern
AP World History: Modern is modeled after a college-level world history course consisting of topics commonly taught at the college level and that will be found on the AP World History: Modern test. AP World History: Modern comprises two separate courses, semester 1, which covers the time period between 1200 and 1750, and semester 2 which covers the time period between 1750 and present. In each course, students investigate significant events, individuals, developments, and processes. Students develop and use skills, practices, and methods such as: analyzing primary and secondary sources; developing historical arguments; making historical connections; and utilizing reasoning about comparison, causation, and continuity and change over time. The course explores six themes that are woven throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places: humans and the environment (ENV), cultural developments and interactions (CDI), governance (GOV), economic systems (ECN), social interactions and organization (SIO), and technology and innovation (TEC).
