As a parent who has reviewed over 5 AP courses, I can highly recommend Mrs. Smith’s AP World History! It was the perfect balance of learning history with creative assignments while doing the work to prepare for the exam. Mrs. Smith was quick to reply to emails and willing to work around travel plans.
Mom's perspective on Mrs. Gwen Smith's AP World History class
AP World History, Gwendolyn Smith
Concept Map of the Transformation of Western Europe 1450 - 1750. During this time period several significant events changes the landscape of Western Europe and would spur on future changes in World History. Students analyze the Renaissance, Reformation, Scientific Revolution, Enlightenment and Age of Exploration. In doing so they create a concept map drawing connections and relationships between these events. Students can use bubbl.us to create the concept map online or do one by hand. This is a great way for students to put together all of the information they are learning and make it ‘make sense’! (While this is very small - to capture this student's great work!- the free online software allows you to zoom in and navigate through the map.)
