AP World Review

Here are some review pages for AP World History. Some are teacher pages with unit notes, others are notes based on some of the AP World textbooks like Stearns. One of links is a nice PowerPoint reviewing the DBQ. Another good link is a quizlet with almost 1400 terms.
  1. AP World Flashcards on Quizlet
  2. Ms. Burnett's AP World History page with notes on each chapter of Stearn's AP World textbook. 
  3. Another nice page with notes from each era of history. Another great site with notes grouped by the five units in AP World 
  4. Essay Writer's Handbook from McGraw Hill. This is supposed to be very good.
  5. Slideshare on how to nail the DBQ

- Note Taking - What Is The Best Way?
While I have a lot of less traditional ways of teaching (in case you haven't figured it out from my blogs), I still do have the kids do some note taking.  Here I have struggled in asking whether or not even this part of my teaching is up with...
