2019 WHAP Summer Syllabus (WSHS)

Hello AP World History students...

Your syllabus for the summer is posted in a google document below. Please read the syllabus carefully. It contains the materials you need to purchase for the class as well as the assignments to complete over the summer. You will need to set a schedule for yourself to complete the work over the summer; in other words, DO NOT PROCRASTINATE!

This is a great class and I can't wait for you to analyze the long scope of World History with me during the 2019-2020 school year!
