Course Objective - AP and CP World History:

Literacy and leadership are foundational principles upon which Liberty Charter High School is built. Literacy does not just refer to the ability to read and write, but also to the literary, mathematical, historical, scientific, and cultural knowledge necessary to communicate. This course addresses the world's history, with a focus on political, intellectual, and social changes.  The course covers a period ranging from 1700 C.E.  to the present day.    

Course Topics:

  • Quarter 1 - New Ideas and New Empires
  • Quarter 2 - Changes in European Society
  • Quarter 3 - Industrialization and Nationalism
  • Quarter 4 - The Contemporary World
Attendance
Attendance in all classes for which a student is registered is an essential part of meeting the requirements to pass each course. Students will not receive credit for a registered course if they have more than 7 excused or unexcused absences within any one semester. Course absences can be made up by completing the missed course work through an independent contract provided the missed course work is completed within 2 weeks of the due date or by completing the missed course work during Saturday school.

Academic Integrity
All work must represent original work done by the student alone. Any work on an assignment that comes from someone else must include acknowledgment of that person’s contributions. Citations are a must. Cheating and plagiarism are serious offenses. At the first offense, the student will receive a zero and the office and parents will be notified. Subsequent consequences include suspension.
