• Welcome to my Pre-AP World History page. I am excited to be the first to introduce you to the advanced placement curriculum. We will be following the same survey units as the academic World History I classes with the exception of more expectation of reading and writing. Being that this is a pre-advanced placement class you should expect to be writing short essays or analysis answers for each unit throughout the year. I look forward to working with all of you and feel free to come to me with any questions or concerns. 

     

     

    I will be utilizing Google Classroom, all class material and powerpoints will be located there. Below you will find the pacing guide for the course.
