AP European History




The resources listed below can be used to supplement the instruction of AP European History. They are geared to match College Board learning outcomes and test preparation, while also advancing critical thinking with real-world information about important policy issues. European History teachers who are not preparing for the AP test may also find the resources useful.

“The AP European History course focuses on developing students’ understanding of European history from approximately 1450 to the present. The course has students investigate the content of European history for significant events, individuals, developments, and processes in four historical periods, and develop and use the same thinking skills and methods (analyzing primary and secondary sources, making historical comparisons, chronological reasoning, and argumentation) employed by historians when they study the past. The course also provides five thems (interaction of Europe and the world; poverty and prosperity; objective knowledge and subjective visions; states and other institutions of power; and individual and society) that students explore throughout the course in order to make connections among historical developments in different times and places.”
