Week 9: A few notes first...
Welcome to Week 9 of AP World History! This week's going to be busy and as usual we have lots to do and so little time. A few important links first include a reminder that reviews are posted - see "Test Review" at the top. This will include a handy study guide that you can print and use. Remember, I am not taking the study guide I gave you Friday for a grade - it is up to you to study and know each question.
An important topic this week will be that of point of view and perspective. No matter how hard we try, historians will always be pushing a biased perspective. This is why AP World History is great - it encourages to look outside our frame of knowledge/existence and expand our horizons. A video we will watch part of will be a TED talk by Nigerian novelist Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (Wiki link). The video is linked below:
As you watch: what, according to Adichie, is "the danger of a single story?" We will discuss this in class. The weekly schedule follows.
