  • Advanced Placement European History is designed to be a challenging class for academically motivated students. It is the equivalent of a college Western Civilization survey course. The standards and expectations for this class are very high. Therefore, I intend to challenge each student academically as much as possible and still remain fair and supportive of their education. I believe a student will learn to understand their own academic capabilities if they are challenged to produce excellence. The goals of the AP European History course are for students to gain knowledge of basic chronology and of major events and trends in Europe’s history from approximately 1450 to the present. Students will develop an understanding of the principal themes in modern European history, including how the social, political, economic, intellectual, cultural and artistic trends have been interrelated over the last 500 years to create the world that we have today. Students who successfully complete AP European History will be better prepared for a college level history curriculum. A secondary goal is to prepare students for the College Board Advanced Placement exam to be given in May of each year.
