AP European History Summer Assignment
Attention all AP European History Students! The following is your highly recommended summer assignment:
- Read and outline Chapters 11 and 12 from the textbook: McKay, Crowston, Weisner-Hanks, Perry. A History of Western Society, Since 1300, For AP, Bedford-St. Martin’s: Boston, 2014/15. 11th Edition. * Please also read and answer the questions to the primary sources located throughout each chapter. You can include this with your chapter outlines.
I have attached the pdf digital version of Ch.11 and Ch.12. If you have any problems with opening these files please let me know ASAP.
*Since we are using a new textbook this year, copies of the textbook to checkout from the library will not be available until the new school year. You are more than welcome to purchase a textbook available on Amazon but are not required. Some students like to do this so they can write directly in their textbook.
2. Learn a Map of Europe: Students will be expected to be familiar with a basic map of Europe and take a quiz on the first day of class. Here is a link to a completed map and outline to help you practice: http://www.eduplace.com/ss/maps/europe.html
3. In order to help you get familiar with primary source readings I highly recommend reading the full version of Machiavelli’s The Prince available for free on ibooks and other digital book readers.*This one is optional.
If you have any questions or need help to get started please come see me in T4 during Finals week or you can email me with questions through school loop email. I will also be on campus during Summer School in room A18, first session only.
