AP European History Summer Work
Welcome to AP European History! This course is comparable in scope and difficulty to a college-level course. AP European History’s principle goal is to foster a deeper understanding of the cultural, diplomatic, economic, intellectual, political, and social history of Europe from the High Renaissance (1450) to the present. While using primary and secondary sources alongside a college-level textbook, students will learn to read with discrimination and to express concise and coherent ideas orally and in writing. It will prepare students to take the AP European exam in May.
