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.

Such a devastating loss. Earlier today, the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, perhaps the most famous monument of Medieval European architecture, suffered a massively destructive fire that engulfed much of the building and destroyed large sections of the structure, including the complete obliterations of the central spire. It is a sad day for France and for the world. President Macron has said the worst has been avoided, as the two main towers were mostly left unharmed, and he has vowed that they will rebuild Notre Dame. At moments like these, we remember that we are not at the end of history, with everything set in its final place, but rather, we are living in the midst of history ongoing, and nothing in this world lasts forever. Of the original Seven Wonders of the World, only one, the Giza Pyramids, remains standing. Notre Dame has suffered damage before, and has been restored. We can only hope that the building can be salvaged in part and perhaps one day be returned to something close to its former glory. #NotreDame

The #Amazing 5th period #APWorld class doing some #ModelUnitedNations simulation of the #UNSCOP to try to solve the issue of what to do with the British Mandate of Palestine. As one might imagine, there was quite a lively discourse. After four days of debate, negotiation, and compromise, the committee voted on and passed one of the two proposed resolutions. Unfortunately, war broke out anyway, highlighting the delicate nature of international diplomacy that is often accompanied by a sense of futility. Nice try, guys. #Israel #Palestine #Zionism #UnitedNations #Partition #1947 #1948 #1967 #Nakba #IsraeliIndependence #SixDayWar #BalfourDeclaration #QuestionOfPalestine #Salaam #Shalom #Peace
Most people don’t know very much about Central Asia. It very often gets sort of skipped over. But historically, Central Asia was a major crossroads of civilization. Take a look at this actually pretty legit map I found from the January 2017 Regents exam. It does a very nice job of showing the physics geography of the region clearly and simply. #SilkRoad #IndoEuropeans #Turkistan #Turkic #EasternIranian #Pamir #Tocharian #TarimBasin #TaklamakanDesert #Steppe #EurasianSteppe #CentralAsia #AryanMigration #Huns #WhiteHuns #Kushans #Bukhara #Samarkhand #AltaiMountains #RIPAralSea #AralSea
Do you think this describes me? 🤔💭
Fatima al Fihriya: Founder of the World’s First University . . It’s all thanks to Fatima al-Fihri that universities around the world exist. After founding the world’s first known university, the University of al-Qarawiyyin, a centre of higher education, it ultimately paved the way for modern universities around the globe. . What did she do? . Fatima al-Fihri was a Muslim woman from Tunisia who founded the first known university more than 1,000 years ago: the University of al-Qarawiyyin in Fez, Morocco. Guinness World Records acknowledges it as the oldest existing and continually operating educational institution in the world. . Much of the information about al-Fihri’s early life is lost to time, but we do know that she was born into a wealthy merchant family who prized education – even for women. Fatima and her sister, Mariam, were well schooled and devoutly religious. In the early 9th century, the al-Fihri family, along with many other Arabic people, left Tunisia and emigrated to Fez – considered a bustling, cosmopolitan metropolis by the standards of the time. When her father died, Fatima inherited his fortune. The sisters then decided to invest the money in something that would benefit their local community. . In 859 CE, al-Fihri decided that a place of higher learning was much needed in the city and founded the al-Qarawiyyin Mosque and University, naming it after her hometown. She oversaw construction of the building – 30 metres long with a courtyard, prayer hall, library and schoolrooms. . In the beginning, the educational part of al-Qarawiyyin offered courses in religious instruction and the Qur’an, but its curriculum gradually expanded into Arabic grammar, mathematics, music, medicine and astronomy, and then began conferring degrees on its graduates. The university swiftly became a famous spiritual and educational centre, visited by scholars and intellectuals from all over the world. Al-Fihri attended lectures there until her later years. . Why was she a trailblazer? .
