My AP European history classroom is a place of intrigue, love of history, and a place that allows the students to discover an area of history that is not about the United States. Students spend time throughout the course analyzing primary sources, learning how to write for college, and strengthen their love of history.
The students that I work with in a rural school district in central Pennsylvania are often the first in their families to apply to college.
Their determination to take AP courses to help finance their college education by earning college credits is a testament to their hard work. My students are willing to do what it takes to be successful.
My AP European History course begins with a study of the Renaissance and ends with the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. Several AP teachers have indicated that their students have developed a deeper understanding of changes that have occurred over time.
The Prince by Machiavelli still describes the conflicts that Europe has faced during the 19th and 20th centuries.
Animal Farm by George Orwell leads the students to understanding how the Russian Revolution affected the common man. Both titles have been strongly suggested by the College Board as ancillary materials for the students to help them with the concept of periodization. My students need classroom sets of the Animal Farm and The Prince to supplement the AP European History curriculum.
