How to the Nail the DBQThis slideshare presentation by Scott Keatley is fantastic.
In contrast, it said, “colleges manage the unique breadth of world history by spreading the content across multiple courses.

DBQ Tips Another great World History slideshare, this one by Kimberly Mc Eachen.
Currently, the single AP World History exam covers about 10,000 years.
While some teachers like the scope of the exam, others say that it is simply too sweeping and that real learning suffers as a result.
To fix this, the board proposed splitting the current AP World History curriculum into two separate classes that students could take over two years. Since the board’s announcement, teachers and students around the country protested the change, saying the test curriculum they’re left with is Eurocentric.“The story starts with European exploration and colonization,” Wiesner-Hanks said.
“And it becomes the people from all of the other parts of the world reacting to the Europeans getting there.”One of these nationwide protests took place earlier this month in Salt Lake City, Utah, where a group of history teachers spoke out at a public forum where AP program chief Trevor Packer was speaking.“You cannot tell my black and brown students that their history is not going to be tested, and then assume that that’s not going to matter,” one teacher said at the forum. Their histories don’t start at colonization.”In New Jersey, a high school student started a petition asking Packer to undo the decision.
