blue_planet.jpgWelcome to Rochester Community Schools AP World History Wiki. This site is designed to force to students to collaborate in their preparation for the AP World History Exam in May 2011. The end goal for this wiki project is to produce a final study guide that summarizes all of the historical content that is to be learned during the AP World History journey. To accomplish this task students will develop several other relevant skills that pertain to online collaboration, team work, writing, research, oranizing, digital production and citing resources.
