AP World History Summer Assignment

Hello everyone,

As the summer break winds down, it is important for you finish the summer assignment. It is due the first day of school. Most of you had had great contributions to the blog questions and I see us having a fruitful year. To make sure that everyone gets the summer assignment done, I will not post anymore discussion questions, but along with the summer assignment, you should finish watching the series "First Peoples" as it will give you visuals of the information in the textbook.

Enjoy the rest of your summer and I will see you August 18th!!...
