Why WHAP'pers World?

Why Am I Blogging?

I never thought of myself as a blogger though I follow quite a few educational blogs.  As I was searching for other blog sites about the teaching of AP World, or of World History in general, I saw few that were devoted to the process.  

Now that I have been teaching this course for a dozen or so years, I thought it was about time for me to start putting down in writing some of the perspectives I have about teaching a high level course such as AP World history.  I am also interested in the process of how students learn history, how students can improve on the Historical Thinking Skills, and how teachers can better be prepared to teach all the different skills that APWH requires of them.  I know I am not an expert in this field in any sense, but I am hoping that this can be seen as a service to other teachers as we struggle through teaching this challenging course together.
