AP* World History Study Guide and Graphic Organizers – Unit 1: Foundations, ~8000 BCE – 600 CE 1. Themes in AP* World History Cultural and intellectual developments / Gender and social structures / Political organization Technological developments / Encounters and interactions between societies Changes and continuities across time periods / Population shifts / Changes in the environment All themes are related to one another! Why you should know this : Knowledge of these themes assists you especially when developing a thesis for an essay. Moreover, because these themes are overarching, they will most likely be the basis of the essay questions. You should always keep these themes in mind when analyzing civilizations and societies, both when you are comparing two different societies and when you are tracing change over time within a society or region. Note the interaction/relationship between many themes. Example : Analyze the impact of the Enlightenment The Enlightenment is an example of a intellectual development that contributed to interactions between societies (as philosophes contacted each other across countries and continents) and had a profound impact on gender and social structures as well as political organization. 2.
