To emphasize the Skill of Contextualization, students will identify and describe the chronological scope of the 6 periods of AP World History.  Then, using 90 historical events, students will place each event within a given period, and identify the associated theme of the event. Ideally, students will connect the given event with one of the words in the unit acronyms.

The purpose of this work is to ensure that students can put any DBQ or LEQ prompt, stimulus from a SAQ, or any Multiple Choice Question INTO CONTEXT.  Knowing the chronological scope of each unit, the associated unit acronym, and a couple of pieces of specific evidence about that given term in the acronym will give students a huge advantage into making sense of any question they’re asked.
