AP European History Course Overview: The AP European History course focuses on cultural, economic, political, and social developments. These focus areas provide context for understanding the development of contemporary institutions, the role of continuity and change in present-day society and politics, and the evolution of current forms of artistic expression and intellectual discourse.

Textbook: A History of the Modern World.  Palmer, R., Cotton, J., Krammer, L.

Class Format: Class-time will include Interactive Lectures, Socratic discussions, and other lessons as appropriate. Assessments will follow the College Board's standard of Multiple Choice, Free Response (Essay), and Short Answer questions (this is a new format for 2015-16 in AP Euro). 

Is this the right course for you? Recommended Grades: AP Government: 80% or greater (unweighted), On-Level Government: 85% or greater, Recommended PSAT Scores, Critical Reading: 50 or higher, Writing: 50 or higher​. 

Before you sign up for this course, ask yourself: Do you like history?  If the answer is no, this may not be the best course for you.  If the answer is yes, then AP European History may be the right class for you.  There will be a significant amount of work, about 50 pages of reading per week.  The tests will be challenging and the essays will be tough.  However, if you have a deep love of history and of learning about history, you should consider AP European History.
