Parents, please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or concerns about the class. I will be asking the students to devote one hour per night to the class at home, please help your scholar to manage their time to be successful. Reading is absolutely the key to success in this class. We typically read between 5 and 10 pages in the textbook nightly. If they are reading for understanding and taking good notes nightly it will serve them well when we apply the three major concepts prescribed by the College Board for analyzing World History in class: Causation, Comparison, and Change Over Time.
The largest challenge that students face early on is learning how to navigate the overwhelming amount of information being thrown at them in the readings. I will help them to develop this skill but it will take time. Applying the concepts will be the key to success on the AP test and scholars must come into class prepared to apply these skills, this starts with the foundation built through reading. Please be diligent in ensuring that your scholar is reading nightly.
