Course Description:

The AP World History: Modern test covers the most breadth of any of the AP History Tests. The summer bridge program is here to help students master the skills they’ll need to tackle the class and the AP Test. We’ll work on building a basic foundation of content knowledge while also exploring techniques for note-taking, research, memorization and analytical essay writing.
