AP European History
Instructor: Grace A. Bailey
AP European History is not a required history course for the state of Georgia, however, it does count as an elective.
AP Euro covers from approximately 1450 to 2001, give or take a few years! The emphasis of study is in the modern and post modern eras. Various themes/periods of study that will be covered include the Renaissance, Reformation, Age of Absolutism, Age of Revolution, German Unification, Industrialization, Technology, the 2 World Wars, the Cold War, Chernobyl, Kosovo along with art, music, literature and philosophy. Students will be required to explain cause and effect, find themes, and discover historical connections to the past and the future! Students will also be responsible for learning all the countries and capitals of Europe, successfully locating them on a map and they will write two collegiate book reviews. Class will consist of lecture, discussion, review, short presentations, practice for the AP exam and perhaps a project. This class will be taught from a Judeo-Christian world view.
Students do not have to take the AP Euro exam to be in the class.
Students should already have a solid foundation in essay writing.
