Classical Greece MindMap and Comparative Essay Practice

Remember, if you didn’t finish your mindmap over Classical Greece today in class, I expect it to be finished this evening for homework.

Additionally, don’t forget to read, annotate, and grade the released student example essay from the 2010 AP World History exam you received in class today.  Pay special attention to the annotated rubric, and try to follow it exactly.  If you’re not sure about the quality of the evidence in the essay, use your textbook to help you fact-check what the student is writing.  Be ready with a grade tomorrow so that we can discuss what earned points and what didn’t– and why.  This will help you immeasurably on your in-class essay on Thursday, so it’s important that you take this assignment seriously.

Homework: Bronze Age Zaption!

Congratulations on making it through your first week of AP World History!  I hope you’re feeling more comfortable with the class– if you’re not, I strongly suggest that you make some time to either come and talk to me in person, or send me an email.  The sooner we address any concerns or anxieties you have about the course, the better.

Now, as to your homework this weekend: don’t worry, it’s not too much at all.  You have your Unit One Vocabulary assignment which is due on Monday, so don’t forget to finish that if you haven’t already, and you’re going to complete the Zaption video assignment linked below.

Basically, I’ve taken an online streaming video– a Crash Course video on the Bronze Age collapse, in this case– and added my own material and questions to it.  You’ll need to enter your full name before you watch the video– otherwise I won’t be able to give you credit!

Once you’ve entered your name, you can start the video.  You’ll need to answer the various questions as they appear in the video in order to get credit for the assignment.

Here’s the link, since I can’t embed this one:

Have a marvelous weekend!
