AP World Review

Hey guys! Here is everything you need to know about our entire AP World History review process. All of the videos and review packets are posted below. Additional videos from live streams and (hopefully) after school reviews will be posted here as well.

You guys are REQUIRED to watch the Key Concept Review videos and complete the related packets.

While you watch and fill out the packet, you should also be taking notes on the side, whether it be on paper, in a doc, or on a note in your phone, whatever works for you. You should take notes on additional information as you see fit, but also, maybe most importantly, keep track of what topics you know well and for which topics you need more review or clarification.

The “Review Lecture” videos are the longer review session videos which I encourage everyone to watch or at least click through using the “time stamps” in the description in order to review the topics that need most review for you. This way you get a personally customized review!

On Sunday, at 3pm (at least for this week, we may adjust in future weeks), I will be live streaming an AP Review Q&A for you guys through Zoom. It will also be recorded and posted after the fact, but it’s best if you can participate directly, so that you can ask questions and get clarification. I will post specific information for that here over the weekend, so you can check back to this page for updates and specific details for how to watch!

I will also be holding in person live review sessions every Wednesday and Friday after school for an hour for the next three weeks.

On Saturday May 4th, there will be a 4 hour long practice exam held at Maspeth from 8-12. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU should be there to take that practice test.

On Saturday May 11th, there will be a final GIANT last minute review of everything you need to know for the test, which will be held from 8-12 in the Maspeth auditorium.

General Textual and Graphic Resources

Do you much prefer reading summaries and consulting simple charts as a form of review over watching videos, or are you just looking for a text-based supplement to the audio-visual presentation style? If so, these two resources might be super helpful to you. You should have already heard of them both, as they got shout outs in your video review homeworks.

APWorldipedia is a great site created by an AP teacher who scores AP exams and writes AP questions. He puts together summaries based on each Key Concept of the AP World course. So basically, the same order of your homework videos, the additional review videos, and my after school review sessions. If there are any points, key concepts, or topics that are still fuzzy for you, this is a great place to get quick clarifications.

Freeman-Pedia is another great teacher-created resource that is almost entirely in the form of colorful graphics such as charts, maps, and timelines, virtually all of which were created specifically for reviewing for the AP World exam. You can click through by time period and see great graphics that combine text and image in a digestible yet content-rich format.

Both of these provide great ways of filling in the blanks of your knowledge or just getting a better sense of the “bigger picture” and how everything fits together.

Where’s North America?! This map was drawn in 1532 by a German cartographer. Even 40 years after Columbus, this was Europe’s perception of the Americas. South America isn’t that bad, but up North? Yikes! Although, to be fair, Asia’s not looking all that great and, wait... where’s Australia?
“I'm for truth, no matter who tells it. I'm for justice, no matter who it's for or against.” . Today is the birthday of #MalcolmX, #ElHajjMalikElShabazz, a hero of the #CivilRights Movement in America. He was assassinated in 1965 at the age of 39. He would be 95 today. May 19th is Malcolm X Day. Why is there no official Malcolm X Day on the calendar? Perhaps it’s because he had a style that could not be sanitized. #AmericanHistory #BlackHistory #MalcolmXDay
Don’t let the maps lie to you. 🗺 ❌ 🌍☑️
The Indus Valley Civilization was the largest and perhaps the most advanced of the ancient river valley civilizations. These recently unearthed texts, discovered by a toddler, seen to provide translations of texts written in the otherwise indecipherable Harappan script. These accounts shed light on what life was like in this vast civilization, both at its height and during its collapse. While the cause of the decline is still debated by experts, many point to evidence that suggests that the Indus Civilization had, in addition to the Indus River, a second major river, knows as the Saraswati River or the Ghaggar Hakra River. Experts believe that the mountains to the north, which served as the source of both rivers, experienced an earthquake that shifted the course of the water flow, leading to the Saraswati River drying up, causing drought and famine, and its water being diverted into the Indus, which led to flooding, as well as East into the Ganges River, which, in the centuries to come, would emerge as a new center point of civilization on the subcontinent. . . . Check out the last one for a good giggle 🤭 😆 🏊🏾‍♂️🤽🏾‍♂️
Remember when it used to be possible to do your assignments on real paper using an actual pen or pencil? 📝
There are some approaches to teaching history that simply cannot be accomplished remotely. For everything else, there’s Google Classroom. . . . This portrait was taken on May 8th, 2017, during one of my favorite activities, possibly my number one favorite activity, of the entire year: a full class re-enactment of a day in the life of #KingLouisXIV at the Palace of #Versailles. It requires a lot of set up: having students pre-write content-rich speeches for the king, buying some apple juice or iced tea as a stand in for breakfast broth, plus multiple small bags of chips and some candies (for the monarch’s meals and desserts), I need to remember to bring my purple fleece blanket for the cape, but thankfully I have a beautifully ornate crown made by a student for a previous project, I have to tape to the wall my full size color hand cut and taped laminated paintings of Louis XIV, and of course, I have to dig out my elk antlers and mounting board. When class begins, students work on the Nunc Agenda while I hand out tiny slips with different roles as members of the Versailles royal court and tasks associated with various cues, instructing them not to turn them over yet. Then, I ask one student to step outside, and I give her/him a slip, letting her/him know that they have been chosen to be King Louis and experience a day in his life. It is only at this point that I abruptly and rapidly start explaining the process to the class, making sure each person knows their role and when to act and has their associated props as needed. With everyone still pretty confused, I throw on the baroque music, and pull up the PowerPoint of Versailles images to go with each scene of the re-enactment, alternating with videos I took when I visited in 2014 (some images from that too, others from Google). Then I ask the two bedroom courtiers to go retrieve the king, and then the Rube Goldberg machine begins. The most satisfying part is how, despite the whole routine never being practiced or seen before, it all pretty much comes together live, each student responding to the cues of the one before, and everyone gets the experience or being both performer and audience simultaneously.
I came across this fascinating currency twice yesterday and had to share it with you guys. This is a five pound note from #Gibraltar, the tiny #British overseas territory located at the southern tip of Spain, just across from #Morocco in North Africa. On (well, the day before) #ThisDayInHistory, (April 30, 711), #Umayyad troops led by Tariq ibn Ziyad, landed at Gibraltar to begin the Muslim conquest of #Visigothic #Hispania (#Spain & #Portugal). The name "Gibraltar" is the #Spanish derivation of the #Arabic name "Jabal al-Ṭāriq" meaning "mountain of Tariq." #SpanishHistory #IslamicHistory #MuslimHistory #HistoriaDeEspaña #TariqIbnZiyad #IberianHistory #IberianPeninsula

It’s a... GIRAFFE! 🦒 The famous Muslim Chinese mariner #ZhengHe presented Emperor #Yongle and the #Chinese court with a #giraffe after arriving from an expedition to Bengala (now #Bangladesh) in 1412. Instantly awestruck by the strange and graceful animal, the emperor sparked a trend of painting giraffes among the #Ming. Each giraffe painting is marked with "The Eulogy of the #Qilin (Chinese unicorn), an Auspicious Omen." See more awesome Asian Art like this at @asianartmuseum <— Follow!
