Welcome to WHAM, World History Modern Advanced Placement! Over the course of this year our primary content emphasis will span from the year 1200 through modern day history. We will study how geography, economics, government, citizenship, leadership, culture, technology and global relations have impacted the different aspects of our society. Students will participate in a more rigorous academic and reflective setting, as this is a college level course. You will not experience a regurgitation of facts but will be required to find links between cultures and continents across multiple time periods. This course requires dedication and constant practice in both scheduled class times and on personal time. The culmination of this course will be an Advanced Placement Exam in May that will determine the level of college credit you will receive for passing this course and exam to be applied at a college or university.
Due to COIVID-19 there are many unknowns, but we will get through this together. We will be as AGILE as possible and we will find success.
I will be available for extra help when needed. Please feel free to set up an appointment.
“It’s our CHOICES that show us what we truly are, far more than our ABILITIES”
