Introduction to World History Project AP®

AP® World History: Modern students are expected to make connections to content that precedes the official 1200 CE start date for the course. To help students prepare to make these connections, many AP teachers begin their year with a Unit 0 by providing an overview of topics such as the rise and fall of empires and the spread of belief systems. With this in mind, the OER Project created a Unit 0 using materials from our WHP Origins course that covers from c. 8000 BCE to 1200 CE. These articles, videos, and activities will help AP students earn the contextualization point on their DBQ and LEQ assessments and set them up for success as they begin their year.
