This is a 20-slide overview notes set that covers the AP World History curriculum related to East Asia from 1450-1750. While the notes are not exhaustive or overly detailed, they do provide the foundation of required information that students need to know for the AP World History exam. The power point takes students through the rise and fall of the Ming Dynasty as well as the rise of the Qing Dynasty in China.

Some of the specific topics covered in the power point include the following:

In addition to the power point, there is a student-outline that goes along with the presentation available for purchase on TpT under the title "AP World History East Asia 1450-1750 Student Notes Outline".
