World History AP
Terre Haute South Vigo High School World History AP
Hello students and thanks so much for taking the challenge of AP World History. This year will be an amazing adventure of knowledge and discovery. I hope to inspire all of you to realize just how vast the world is and that you can make a difference in it! Change can come from the smallest places! Good luck and remember Aristotle's famous quote "We are repeatedly what we do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit".

Very helpful website with video:

Bridging World History-Very helpful series created by college professor around the US to help students! There are write ups and videos on each topic. Please use -it will help your studies!!!! Directions to get to the videos: Open the unit you want to study and click on “view the video” in the bottom left of the screen (I usually have to click it twice to open).

John Green's review of history with his videos are also very popular

Silk road assignment:

I decided to take it easy on you and post a few videos instead of making you read a really long and boring website. It would be a wise idea to take some notes over the videos as you watch them-especially as it relates to commodities exchanged. After viewing the following websites, scroll down to the Silk Roads quiz and take it. Good Luck and I will see you on Tuesday for sure!!!

silk road websites:

Welcome to the Brief Review in Global History and Geography Web site. Here you can test your knowledge with multiple-choice questions from actual Regents exams. You'll find out right away what you know and what you need to work on before your exam. You can also practice your test-taking skills on document-based essay questions (DBQs)

Videos: Videos are posted by other people than the instructor on the internet and I am just providing students with links to these sites (posted by others). Most videos are from youtube and all videos links are posted for educational/ academic uses for this World History course. Links are simply posted as a means to help students who'd like to revisit material before tests or who have been absent.
