This is a brief, 11 slide introduction to the redesigned AP World History SAQ. The power point includes a brief overview of the redesigned AP World History Exam format and then breaks down the SAQ, including the types of questions (stimuli-based and knowledge-based) as well the format of how to answer the questions. The power point also includes a strategy of "ACE" for answering the SAQs and has a list of "Do Nots" that students should avoid when writing the SAQs. It also includes an example of a stimuli-based SAQ as well as two knowledge-based SAQs.
The power point concludes with an introductory SAQ related to the period of Classical China. Students are instructed to work with a partner to respond to the practice SAQ related to Chapter 8 of the Bentley "Traditions and Encounters" textbook. This final part of the lesson can easily be adapted to fit any unit or textbook that is being used in an AP World class.
