AP European History

Description:

This course is a study of the social, economic, cultural, intellectual, political and diplomatic history of Modern Europe and its place in the history of the world from the fall of Constantinople to the fall of the Berlin wall and the Soviet Union.

AP European History will be taught at a level and rigor equivalent to that required of students in a college freshman or sophomore Modern European History course. The course objective is to develop an understanding of the major periods, ideas, movements, trends and themes that characterize European history from approximately 1450 (the high Renaissance) to the present.

Students will develop the ability to analyze historical evidence and express understanding and analysis in writing, with the goal of being well prepared for university level work. The course will correspond to recent trends in history curricula at the undergraduate level and will prepare students for the College Board examination in European History given in the Spring.

First semester content begins with the Late Middle Ages and Renaissance period in Europe and concludes with the study of Napoleon. Second semester content begins with the Conservative Order and reform movements of the early 1800s and ends with modern times - the study of the West at the dawn of the 21st century.

Learning Targets:

  1. Writing: Develop a thesis, support with multiple forms of evidence, and provide analysis with an explanation in written form.
  2. Reading: Identify main ideas, analyze supporting details, and evaluate inferences within discipline-specific readings.
  3. Content: Apply content in order to evaluate relationships and draw conclusions.
  4. Communication: Produce clear and coherent communication in which the development, organization, and style are appropriate to task, purpose, and evidence.
