    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    The World History AP curriculum follows societal development from prehistoric times to the modern day which has allowed me to better understand the roots of some of the most complex social, political, and historical issues which are still relevant today. After being presented with an in-depth overview of the world's chronology, I was also able to notice common themes and trends across societies and gain insight about the numerous cultures that I had once been oblivious to.

    Course highlights:

    During my time in this course, I learned about major historical events such as the gory Persian wars, expansion of Alexander's empire, and crucial advancements in technology across the globe. Not only did I establish a solid historical foundation once the year drew to a close, but I absorbed some of the most random tidbits of information which have since stuck with me regarding bizarre religious beliefs, obscure sacrificial proceedings, and the names of dozens of important figures and dates. Having an intimate class and easy-going teacher also contributed to the comfortable atmosphere and truly life-changing learning experience.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in WHAP, staying on top of assignments and constantly reviewing information are crucial. Because the class is very much memorization-based and jam packed with material, figuring out what kind of study tools are the most beneficial will definitely come in handy. Using the website that correlates with the textbook was one of the most effective study mechanisms for me because it offers interactive maps, multiple choice quizzes, and other helpful resources. Additionally, learning to budget time is also an important aspect of the course because the extensive amounts of homework assigned require a lot of commitment outside of class. While the workload and dense material seem off-putting at first, the class teaches many essential life skills such as time management and productivity which will be useful when tackling college courses.
