This class can be used as a stand-alone class to cover the content portion of AP World History. Or it works great as a supplement to an AP World History course in school, especially those in which the teachers are asking the students to read and learn content outside of the classroom.

I have been teaching AP World History since 2011. In addition, for 2 years, I have offered AP DBQ prep classes on Outschool (rated 5 stars) and there are also a handful of learners who I tutor on Outschool specifically in the area of AP World History (rated 5 stars.)
Approximately 25 pages of reading will be assigned each week. In addition, students will be expected to answer practice multiple choice questions and write answers to 3-6 short answer questions.
Students are encouraged to purchase a recent review book: Princeton, 5 Steps to a 5, Barrons, OR AMSCO Advanced Placement World History Modern (1200-present).
Students will be graded on multiple-choice completion. Written responses will be graded based on the college board rubric for SAQs. Students will be given written feedback to strive for mastery of the content and skills.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be directed to read from one of the review books listed in the sources. I strongly recommend AMSCO, but you may choose another. These books are available in print and as an e-book. OER Project will be used for supplemental reading and links to some videos for enrichment. Google Forms will be used for assessment. Students need only enter their first name.
