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.

Use your critical thinking when people in power call for war. They will use every trick in the book to convince you that war is a good idea. They will say it’s necessary. They will demonize “the other”. They will straight up lie to you. They will call those who disagree traitors who disrespect the troops. They will insist that you agree in the name of patriotism. They might say it will be quick and easy and that the people there actually want us to do it. If you need an example, look back to what was said about going into Iraq. Remember the billions of tax dollars that will be lost. Remember the lives that will be destroyed. Remember our shared humanity.

On #ThisDayInHistory December 27, 537, the first religious services were held in the newly built #HagiaSophia. Built under the reign of #Byzantine Emperor #Justinian, it was once the #GreekOrthodox Christian patriarchal cathedral, briefly a #RomanCatholic cathedral, later an #Ottoman imperial mosque, and now a museum (Ayasofya Müzesi) in #Istanbul, #Turkey, formerly known as #Constantinople. Built in AD 537 before the Middle Ages, it was famous in particular for its massive dome. It was the world's largest building and an engineering marvel of its time. It is considered the epitome of Byzantine architecture and is said to have "changed the history of #architecture". You can see both the #Christian mosaics and the #Islamic calligraphy decorating the interior. The four towers, called minarets, were added by the Ottomans for delivering the five-times-daily call to prayer.
#Aramaic, the language spoken by #Jesus of Nazareth, along with most of the rest of the Middle East from the Iron Age until the early Middle Ages, still survives in this tiny town in #Syria. This is how it sounds.

#FlashbackFriday to the last day of school 2018! Epic rap battle between MC Hammurabi & DivineIntervention. My lyrics are recycled bars from the previous year’s talent show. His are straight #off the dome.

Why Socrates Hated Democracy from The School of Life. This is one person’s reflection on one philosopher’s reflection on democracy. It doesn’t mean you have to agree with it. But it’s worth hearing a new perspective on something we often don’t stop to consider.
