AP World History Themes

There are 5 themes in AP world history. 
Each and every unit we study relates to the themes and it is very important for students to know and understand the themes.
We learn PIRATES to help remember the themes. (7 letters? Only 5 themes? I know) Make it work!

Theme 1
Interaction Between Humans and the Environment
• Demography and disease
• Migration
• Patterns of settlement
• Technology

The interaction between humans and the environment is a fundamental theme for world history. The environment shaped human societies, but increasingly human societies also affected the environment. During prehistory, humans interacted with the environment as hunters, fishers and foragers, and human migrations led to the peopling of the earth. As the Neolithic revolution began, humans exploited their environments more intensively, either as farmers or pastoralists. Environmental factors such as rainfall patterns, climate, and available flora and fauna shaped the methods of exploitation used in different regions.  Human exploitation of the environment intensified as populations grew and as people migrated into new regions. As people flocked into cities or established trade networks, new diseases emerged and spread, sometimes devastating an entire region. During the Industrial Revolution, environmental exploitation increased exponentially. In recent centuries, human effects on the environment — and the ability to master and exploit it — increased with the development of more sophisticated technologies, the exploitation of new energy sources and a rapid increase in human populations. By the 20th century, large numbers of humans had begun to recognize their effect on the environment and took steps toward a “green” movement to protect and work with the natural world instead of exploiting it.

Theme 2
Development and Interaction of Cultures
• Religions
• Belief systems, philosophies and ideologies
• Science and technology
• The arts and architecture

This theme explores the origins, uses, dissemination and adaptation of ideas, beliefs, and knowledge within and between societies. Studying the dominant belief system(s) or religions, philosophical interests, and technical and artistic approaches can reveal how major groups in society view themselves and others, and how they respond to multiple challenges. When people of different societies interact, they often share components of their cultures, deliberately or not. The processes of adopting or adapting new belief and knowledge systems are complex and often lead to historically novel cultural blends. A society’s culture may be investigated and compared with other societies’ cultures as a way to reveal both what is unique to a culture and what it shares with other cultures. It is also possible to analyze and trace particular cultural trends or ideas across human societies.

Theme 3
State-Building, Expansion and Conflict
• Political structures and forms of governance
• Empires
• Nations and nationalism
• Revolts and revolutions
• Regional, transregional, and global structures and organizations

This theme refers to the processes by which hierarchical systems of rule have been constructed and maintained and to the conflicts generated through those processes.  In particular, this theme encourages the comparative study of different state forms (for example, kingdoms, empires, nation-states) across time and space, and the interactions among them. Continuity and change are also embedded in this theme through attention to the organizational and cultural foundations of long-term stability, on one hand, and to internal and external causes of conflict on the other. Students should examine and compare various forms of state development and expansion in the context of various productive strategies (for example, agrarian, pastoral, mercantile), various cultural and ideological foundations (for example, religions, philosophies, ideas of nationalism), various social and gender structures, and in different environmental contexts. This theme also discusses different types of states, such as autocracies and constitutional democracies.  Finally, this theme encourages students to explore interstate relations, including warfare, diplomacy, commercial and cultural exchange, and the formation of international organizations.

Theme 4
Creation, Expansion and Interaction of Economic Systems
• Agricultural and pastoral production
• Trade and commerce
• Labor systems
• Industrialization
• Capitalism and socialism

This theme surveys the diverse patterns and systems that human societies have developed as they exploit their environments to produce, distribute and consume desired goods and services across time and space. It stresses major transitions in human economic activity, such as the growth and spread of agricultural, pastoral and industrial production; the development of various labor systems associated with these economic systems (including different forms of household management and the use of coerced or free labor); and the ideologies, values and institutions (such as capitalism and socialism) that sustained them. This theme also calls attention to patterns of trade and commerce between various societies, with particular attention to the relationship between regional and global networks of communication and exchange, and their effects on economic growth and decline. These webs of interaction strongly influence cultural and technological diffusion, migration, state formation, social classes and human interaction with the environment.

Theme 5
Development and Transformation of Social Structures
• Gender roles and relations
• Family and kinship
• Racial and ethnic constructions
• Social and economic classes

This theme is about relations among human beings. All human societies develop ways of grouping their members as well as norms that govern interactions between individuals and social groups. Social stratification comprises distinctions based on kinship systems, ethnic associations and hierarchies of gender, race, wealth and class. The study of world history requires analysis of the processes through which social categories, roles and practices were created, maintained and transformed. It also involves analysis of the connections between changes in social structures and other historical shifts, especially trends in political economy, cultural expression and human ecology.

Welcome back and thank you for all of your patience during my 
extended absence. Thank you to Ms. Jacobus for keeping our ship on course. Everyone did a great job, worked together, and made the best of a difficult situation. Knowing that you were well prepared made my recovery go very smoothly. Thank you for your support. I could not have done it without you WHAP Brigade!

Week of December 19th

We made it to winter break! Congratulations on all of your hard work. Please check with Ms. Jacobus for details and timing on work this week for Ch. 9. Your homework for winter break is to take Rainbow Monkey Land Notes on Ch. 10, due 1/9. We will start reviewing for the Chapter 10 test when we get back from break. 

"PPP" New Assignment: Unit 2 Arts and Crafts: PIRATES+Place=Pic

Due Date: 12/23 or 1/9
We need to fill-in our back wall with material from Unit 2- Ch. 3, 4, 5, 6
Create a colorful image using construction paper, or other materials, to help us review for the AP Exam. 
  • Step 1: Pick a civilization from any chapter in Unit 2 (3, 4, 5, 6)
  • Step 2: Pick a "PIRATES" theme

  • Step 3: Make a "PPP" (PIRATES+Place=Pic) (Write theme, place, your name) (Colorful)
Create an image (size min. 12"x12") that represents something significant from a specific place (region/empire/civilization/country) in Unit 2. Then select a "PIRATES" topic for the place. I must be able to tell the time period, the location, and historical significance (which PIRATES) from the picture you make just by looking at it. Write the name and year of the civilization and the PIRATES theme shown in your creation, and your name. You can make it fun by using a character, historical or imaginary, to tell your story. For example, SpongeBob dressed as a Buddhist monk in Ming China. Patrick spinning silk in Han China. A Narwhal dressed as a Senator in Ancient Rome giving a speech on democracy. Mickey Mouse building the Great Wall of China. Genghis Khan traveling/trading/conquering along the Silk Road. The person/character is not a requirement, just an idea.

You need to present your piece of art to the class and explain how it is connected to a "PIRATES" theme and why it is significant. (20 seconds) This will assure quality control. Please put time and thought into your picture. It will be graded on effort and your ability to follow the 3 steps listed above. Also, blast me with color! BIG AND BRIGHT! You can use non-period characters, or no characters. If you use a character, just make sure they are wearing, doing, showing, explaining, connecting your art to something significant that will help us review for the AP Exam in May.  

Due Date: 12/23 or 1/9 (1/9 if you want time to make it really cool....because you are artistic like that)  

Your pic should "show" us a theme from a civilization in Unit 2: (Look in the textbook!)

P Political, Gov't, State Building (conquering)
I Interactions between Humans and the Environment (irrigation)
R Religion
A Art and Architecture
T Technology (inventions)
E Economy (trade)
S Social and Gender Roles

WINTER BREAK ASSIGNMENT: Ch. 10 Cornell Notes, Due Jan. 9th. 

Week of December 12th


Sorry! Rainbow Monkey Land Notes for Chapter 9-Islam

Due next Tuesday 9/20

I'm in NYC at Trump Tower interviewing for a cabinet position- 

                        Secretary of Homeland Kindness!*

Good luck on your Chapter 8 test and really focus on chapter 9 information on Islam. It is important to understand the history of the religion and its role in global history and geopolitics in every unit from now on and especially in our world today. Make sure you can explain the difference between Sunni and Shia Islam. The Islamic world was an immense arena for exchange of goods, technology, and ideas. Follow the spread of the religion and note the many significant examples of cultural diffusion. 

*Just kidding. I am at home in bed. These are pics from our great East Coast Adventure LAST Xmas:)

Send Alair emails- anytime

Questions, comments, suggestions for improvement. 

Thank you for your support during this very difficult personal time.

Kaizen Kick-off! WHAP Brigade to the Rescue!
Constant improvement, or Kaizen, is how Japanese companies maintain quality products and excellent customer service. I am going to be out for total hip replacement surgery starting 11/10. We are going to maintain academic quality and rigor in the face of a difficult challenge. If you see room for improvement, or have an idea about how to make things better, speak up and let me know right away. Your input is welcome. I might not always use your exact idea, but I will listen and incorporate it into the big picture. 

We are going to prepare for each chapter test by assigning chunks to WHAP Brigade Squads, then the Squad will become experts on their chunks and teach them to the Platoon(class) (including Study Guide questions and answers). Visual aids are mandatory- PowerPoint and/or posters. Instead of textbook Cornell Notes, you will take in-class "regular" notes. Our goals is to stay flexible and work together to invent a new learning processes. You are responsible for your own learning (now and for the rest of your life!). I am your coach. The coach has been benched :) 

I'll maintain the website from home and communicate with you and Ms. Jacobis. Please check here for updates and send me all of your thoughts/ideas/questions/concerns. Please help me anticipate any problems or obstacles or cracks. Please send everything to my school email: Allison-Alair@scusd.edu. 

My hipster surgery is on 11/10. I should be able to respond the following week and help you with any DBQ Mongol Essay questions during Thanksgiving break. My goal is to keep you focused on May 11th and the AP Exam- no matter what else is going on around us. We can do this! Please spend time on the AP College Board Website learning about "how the test works" and create your own review plan. There are endless resources on the Internet and you should have your study guide binders in order at home- one for each quarter. Binder 1 should be chapters 1-6.

Great Job Sophomore Class!
Homecoming was AWESOME!!!!    
Our own WHAP Brigade Caster-Troy led the class of 2019 to amazing success for all of the homecoming activities. Congratulations!

We will get back on track this week with Chapter 6- "The Others" 600 BCE-1200 CE. Not considered part of the Great Empires for this time period, Africa, the Americas and Pacific Oceania, are covered in this final chapter for Unit 2-The Second Wave. This chapter is important because you need to know details in order to compare civilizations. You will be asked to compare famous Golden Age empires to these, not so famous, "other" civilizations. They will try to trick you by asking obscure questions about "PIRATES" details- like identifying monuments, writing, art, crops, etc. Look closely at every picture you see, read notes in the textbook margins, and always read the "Working with Evidence" at the end of every chapter for tips and clues.

Week of 9/1/16
Welcome Message from Coach Alair:
This is a college course with a college textbook and a fast, college pace. We will read one chapter every week. Most of the AP Exam focuses on writing. This is your first AP class, so you must create new systems and tools to be successful now and in future AP classes. Everyone learns differently, so you must customize the course to meet your needs. I am only your AP Coach. You are teaching yourself and preparing for the AP World History Exam on 5/11/17. You must take responsibility for your learning, just like in college. This is all on you. I am only here to help....and cheer you on! You can do it! Go team! Siss-boom-bah!

There is no whining in AP, so brace yourself for a difficult, fun, and challenging year. A positive mental attitude will help you through the tough spots. This class is voluntary. If it appears too difficult, or you don't have the time to be successful in the class, then you have a choice- drop the class and change to college prep world history, or talk to me about getting extra help and support. You cannot transfer out later in the semester. See counselor for details. Please assess your personal situation and make a decision during the first week of class. I will not be following you around reminding you to turn things in, or study. 

We will have a new textbook this year along with a course redesign and AP Exam format changes. Please use my website to stay up-to-date on assignments and homework. Studying/review for the exam starts TODAY! You will build your own study guide each day by maintaining a class binder. The more organized you are, the better you will do on the test. If you pass the test, you will earn college credit and free up valuable (expensive) college time for other courses. AP World HIstory will also boost your high school GPA- your 4.0 A is now worth 4.3. 

Cornell Notes: 
Take a deep breath. You must read the entire textbook and take Cornell Notes on every chapter. There are no shortcuts. All college history classes require a great deal of reading. You will not get credit for notes that don't follow the guidelines. There are many samples and videos on the Internet for Cornell Notes. Please do not complain about Cornell Notes. This skill will get you through college, so get used to it.
