In AP European History, students investigate significant events, individuals, developments, and processes from approximately 1450 A.D. to the present. Students develop and use the same skills, practices, and methods employed by historians: analyzing primary & secondary sources; developing historical arguments; making historical connections; and utilizing reasoning about comparison, causation, and continuity and change over time. The course also provides seven themes that students explore throughout the course to make connections among historical developments in different times and places: interaction of Europe & the world, economic & commercial development, cultural & intellectual development, states & other institutions of power, social organization & development, national & European identity, and technological & scientific innovations. This course requires weekly engagement but is primarily asynchronous which allows students to work around their school schedule. There is a synchronous meeting that will take place one evening per week that students are expected to attend. Meeting times to be determined at the beginning of the term.
