AP Modern World History

AP Modern World History



The Online Advanced Placement World History: Modern (WHAP) is a challenging full year course that explores from the year 1200 C.E. to the present day. WHAP is considered the equivalent of a semester college survey course in Modern World history (equal three credits). In Online AP World History: Modern, students investigate significant events, individuals, developments, and processes from 1200 C.E. to the present. Students develop and use the same skills, practices, and methods employed by historians: analyzing primary and secondary sources; developing historical arguments; making historical connections; and utilizing reasoning about comparison, causation, and continuity and change over time. This online course provides six themes that students explore throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places: humans and the environment, cultural developments and interactions, governance, economic systems, social interactions and organization, and technology and innovation. Because the exam is prepared by the college Board and given at local high schools, course requirements will be completed by the first week in May in order to prepare for the test.
