1 Pre-AP World History Summer Assignment Welcome to the pre-ap World History course! This will be the first part of a two year college-level course designed to familiarize you with the broad patterns of human experience. You will be charged with the role of historian and will engage in a plethora of activities that encourage critical thinking and honing your ability to debate established historical interpretations and express your educated views using primary source documents. Throughout the academic year, you will actively compare cultures and look for historical patterns that stretch across units and tie all human populations together throughout history. The following summer assignments are required of all students entering into the 9 th grade Pre-AP World History course in September Your assignment consists of two parts. The map portion of the assignment will count for 50 POINTS of your first test grade. The other 50 points will come from an inclass map assessment in the first month of school. Summer maps will be graded and redistributed so that students can study. Part I: (50 points) The Pre-AP course divides segments of time into six periods. In ninth grade, we will cover four of those periods in history. The following periods will be covered: Period 1: Technological and Environmental Transformations, to c. 600 BCE Period 2: Organization and Reorganization of Human Societies, c. 600 BCE to 600 CE Period 3: Regional and Transregional Interactions, c. 600 CE to 1450 CE Period 4: Global Interactions, c to c While studying these time periods, it is important to consider the impact that geography plays on each civilization and time period. The first part of the summer assignment is to label a series of maps that correspond with the places in each time period. When labeling your maps, please use colored pencils to shade in specific areas. In addition to shading, please label the geographic feature/place and use the symbols below when necessary. For civilizations, please shade the area. A blank key has been provided on each map. Use this key if your writing does not fit on the map itself. The maps should be labeled as follows: Period 1: The four river valley civilizations please label both the river(s) that correspond with each civilization and shade the area that corresponds with the extent of the civilization o Nile River Valley civilization o Indus River Valley civilization o Huang He River Valley civilization o Babylonian Empire of Mesopotamia Nubia Himalaya Mountains Gobi Desert Sahara Desert The seven continents Pacific Ocean Period 2:

2 The Mauryan Dynasty The Han Dynasty The Roman Empire (at its largest extent in 117 AD) Alexandria Constantinople Mediterranean Sea Period 3: Charlemagne s Holy Roman Empire Byzantine Empire (c CE) Abbasid Caliphate Tang Dynasty Kievan Rus Baghdad Japan The Mongol Empire c The Mayan Empire Scandinavia The Arabian Peninsula Italian Peninsula Period 4: Aztec Empire Inca Empire Andes Mountains Iberian Peninsula Hispanola (the island of Haiti and the Dominican Republic) Brazil West African Civilizations (shade the area do not individually label each civilization) England Atlantic Ocean Indian Ocean North America There will be an in-class map assessment during the first month of school. These maps will be kept and used for reference throughout the school year, so please make sure that your maps are neat. Symbols to use for physical features: ^ Mountains Desert ^ ^

3 Part II: (50 points) Read Jack Weatherford s book Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World. This important scholarly work is where the AP course draws most of its information about the Mongols. Not only is it extremely relevant to our class, it is an exciting story and a well-written narrative that reads less like a history and more like a novel. *NOTE: You are not required to read the entire book. For this assignment, please read up to and including chapter 5 (page 131). In addition to reading the book, you will complete an essay. The essay will be counted towards the writing portion of the overall trimester grade. The essay task is as follows: At the turn of the new millennium, historians bestowed the honor of Man of the Millennium upon Genghis Khan. Based on the evidence presented by Jack Weatherford and his contributions toward the making of the modern world, justify the selection of Genghis Khan as Man of the Millennium. Then, select an individual in global history that could have been nominated as the Man of the Millennium. Discuss why this individual would have been a more suitable choice. If you choose a person from United States history, you must discuss their involvement in global history, not American history. It is important that your essay includes a counterargument. A counterargument is a set of reasons to oppose an argument. In this case, your counterargument is a presentation of another individual who should have been nominated as man of the millennium instead of Genghis Khan. You must provide a specific individual with specific reasons as to why they should have received this honor. Remember to convey your writing in a formal manner. That includes avoiding personal pronouns such as I, we, you, me, us, etc. In addition to turning in a hard copy of the essay in class, all essays must be submitted on Create an account with an address and password that you will remember. Once you create an account, join the Pre-AP World History class using the following information: Class ID: Password: preap17 Essays must be submitted onto Turn It In by 7 AM on Friday, September 8 th. Essays that are not submitted onto the website will be considered late, even if the hard copy is on time.

Essay format: 2-3 pages long (may be longer than 3 pages but no more than 5) Times New Roman, 12-point font 1-inch margins Double-spaced An introduction with a thesis statement and a proper conclusion Cover page please follow the below format:
